First Week (of My Last First Day of the Fall Semester 2017)

IMG_1002Hey Everyone!!!

It’s the first Day (Of My Last Day of this Fall semester). I am excited to start my classes, but I still don’t know what to expect just yet. I am taking Stategic Management, Financial Statement Analysis, Marketing Management and Management 455- Productions/Operations Management. The classes are Everyday except for Marketing Management that’s online. My first day of class starts at 9:50 and on my second day of classes it starts at 7 am  and my last class starts at 8:45. I am taking one class Monday, Wednesday Friday and Tuesday Thursday I have two classes. So I  can stay in bed for a little bit longer on my 9:50 day class but have to be up bright and early from my 7 am. I enjoy the idea of being able to beat the noon rush hour on campus. Just a disclaimer, I am that  student that would rather take classes that starts at 7 am than wait until later in the evening. I enjoy the idea of being in class early because when everyone is sleeping, I’m done with all my classes and I have the rest of the day to study, workout, hangout with friends, volunteer for clubs I am a part of. I am full-time student this semester which means I am studying constantly and will consistently have an assignment or Collaborative Learning Community (CLC for short) and it is a group project that all GCU students have to do whether it’s for an assignment or a semester-long project and then you have to present your work at the end of the semester for your final. Just depends on the Instructor and class structure). Many students here at GCU will tell you that they either love or absolutely dislike CLCs with a passion. This year I am taking Strategic Management which has a heavy CLC work load which also means that I am in a group with four for five of my peers and we will working together all semester long. CLCs are hard and long, but if you have the right group of people CLCs are extremely rewarding. However if you are having difficulties in your CLC group (I will be keeping you in my prayers), make sure to talk to that member and see if they can pull their weight. If nothing changes please talk to your Instructor and he or she will talk to them and if not happens with the Instructor talking to them. You and your group can fire that person after your Instructor gives you the okay to do so. Work hard and be prepared for those CLCs!!! I am excited for this semester and its only been a few days, but I know that after this week it will be more hectic so keep me in your prayers. I know that God will keep me and provide for me when I can’t handle or have control over various situations. I am so grateful to be at Grand Canyon University because I can talk about God all day and no one looks at me weird or judges me. I LOVE THAT!!! Thank you God for giving me this opportunity to attend Grand Canyon University and for this to (sadly) be my last semester here. I am grateful and appreciative of this opportunity and I will keep you guys posted on my journey!!!

Is there any ideas or suggestions that you want me to talk about in my blog. This is a place where I am just sharing my journey but if you have any questions or want to know more about Grand Canyon, leave a comment. Reach out to me because I want to get to know you all. Thank you and have a great night.

Quick Transfer Dorm Tour Video

Here is my Grand Canyon University Quick Transfer Dorm Tour. I lived in a transfer dorm for both Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 on campus. The room that I stayed in was a double occupancy and handicapped so our bathroom was bigger than our bedroom space. This room has a living room space, two bedrooms on each side of the living room space. My suite mates side had a walk in closet, smaller bathroom than ours and their bedroom space was a bit larger than their bathroom and closet space. My roommate and me had a closet that had a bottom bar for clothes that were not too long that would not hit the floor and the a top bar for our clothes that we wanted to keep off the floor. We had two shelves to store our food, mugs, snacks and other miscellaneous items. My roommates and me made some great memories and I am sad that we are not going to be together again this year. Yet, my roommates keep in touch with each other and I am grateful that we were put together because we did not have many issues and we got a long really well. So I hope you enjoy the video and let me know did you like your living space when you lived on campus and did you get along with your roommates well? if so, tell me what was your favorite memory with your roommates?

Hello… it’s me.. Again!!

Hello Everyone!!!

My name is Karina Robinson. I am a currently attending Grand Canyon University. LOPES UP!!! I am studying to get my Bachelors degree in Business Administration. I also have a passion for Marketing and Social media. For a long time, I had heard through different mentors and teachers that I should start a blog or a YouTube channel because I had a lot of creative ideas and things to talk about that I thought could be usefully for others. I always worried about “Who would watch my Vlogs or read my blog posts? I was encouraged by my GCU Marketing Professor, Mindy Weinstein, who encouraged me to start my own blog and personal brand. She encouraged my peers and me to start a blog because it would set us apart from other students when looking for a job, it would look good on our resumes and would help us with our writing skills. And also by my mentor, Moniek Eldridge that reminded me that “People want to hear what you have to say especially since you are currently in college. There will be parents and students wanting to know about your experiences, any hacks and tricks to help them have better knowledge about everything GCU.” And this is why I started a blog. In my blog, I’ll be talking about myself, GCU campus life, food and being a transfer. I want to share my thoughts while I am on my personal journey for my purpose in this business and digital media world. I pray that I can inspire and help others that did not have friends and family to guide me when I transferred to GCU a year ago.

I am grateful that I am no longer afraid to share my thoughts and help those that are curious about going to college or transferring to the college of their choice. I just want my readers to know that even though we are going to different colleges, we can learn from each other, encourage and inspire each other to do better for ourselves and communities. I am excited and grateful to blog about what I like and am passionate about. I can’t wait to start and hope that you all will come with me on this journey.

Let me know in the comments section, If any of you are transfer students and what was your experience like at your college? The things you liked about your campus or things you would like for your college to enhance or change so that other transfers have a better experience?
