Each week on Woke, Wise, College Kids, Dr. Erin Wheeler, founder of Be Preppy, shares soulful advice and little known tips to help college students maximize their college experience, get their degree, and secure the post-college bag!
On our last episode, we talked about reflection after the conclusion of the fall semester. The conclusion of the fall semester signals the holidays and new resolutions. Besides being optimistic about the new semester as a student, you may be excited about personally starting over in the new year. You may have, well you should have, goals that you are setting for yourself. I am not big on new year resolutions. They seem to only stick around for January and February. Instead, I prefer to set attainable goals year round. Knowing how to set goals and to create a plan to reach them without external motivation or external advice is a critical skill for college and personal success. Goals help move your life forward and prevent you from becoming stagnant. Take it from an old 30 something, stagnation leads to unhappiness...and you don’t want to waste your good 20’s being unhappy. This episode is dedicated to helping you set real goals and attained them. We’ll discuss SMART goals, the types of goals you should consider, how to put an action plan together, and how to identify and block goal killers.

Another semester of finals are in the books. How did you do? Did any of your grades increase from midterms? Did you not do as well on your finals and didn't get grade you hoped for? Did you fail a class? Whatever your outcome, you get a chance to wipe the slate clean next semester. However, you’ll still need to reflect on this semester and identify the things that went well and the things that didn’t. Success doesn’t automatically happen. It comes through gradual improvement. In order to get better, you must take a look back to determine your strengths, weaknesses and opportunities and make an action plan for getting better. Reflections began when you ask yourself tough questions and use the answers in a meaningful way. In this episode, the host, Dr. Erin provides five important questions to guide self-reflection at the conclusion of a semester.

Entry level position. Bachelor’s degree required. 1 year experience preferred but not required. Preferred candidate will have strong communications, organization, and leadership skills. Must be able to work independently and on a team.
This is the standard description for jobs that you’ll seeing during your post-graduation job search. Confusing huh? They want someone that doesn’t have experience but prefer they do. To have one year experience means that you’d have to be working a year before applying, but you just graduated and didn’t have the opportunity for full-time work. It’s the most frustrating part of job searching: you need experience to get more experience. How do you beat the system? The answer: Internships. Internships are the key to getting a head start on a promising career. They help your application reach the top of the pile or better yet; they help the jobs come to you.

Making top grades in college isn’t all about being smart, but rather being wise, which is the whole point of this podcast. It never fails that students who are struggling in class are mentally and physically tired. Truth is, there’s no magical learning tips to substitute for the impact that diet and exercise have on your academic performance. For example, simply avoiding sugary drinks and drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily, can improve focus, memory, mood, and problem solving skills. Getting top grades truly involves the mind and the body.
