Every of the following colleges is placed highly in American college rankings, and every of them provides a strong winning combination of rich student life, quality academics, attractive facilities, plus strong name recognition.

Bates College

All the students of Bates College get lots of interaction with their class as well as faculty, because Bates College places a distinctive emphasis on interactive seminar classes. Other areas that the school highly values are research, senior thesis work, and service-learning. The college has been supporting the liberal education spirit since its founding – Bates College was established by Maine abolitionists in 1855.

Bowdoin College

This school is located in a small town in Maine – Brunswick. Bowdoin College takes pride in its fabulous location and the excellence of academic services and programs offered to students. On Orr’s Island, just 8 miles away from the school, there is Bowdoin’s Coastal Studies Center that is 118 acres big.

Bryn Mawr College

This is one of the top colleges for women. Bryn Mawr is one of the members of the famous Tri-College Consortium, along with Haverford and Swarthmore. Between the three campuses there are regular shuttles. This college is very close to Philadelphia, so students are allowed to register for courses at the nearby University of Pennsylvania. Bryn Mawr is known not only for its strong academics, but it’s also rich in traditions and history.

Reed College

And finally, this is a suburban college about 15 minutes from downtown Portland Oregon. You’ve probably heard that Reed consistently ranks very high for the number of PhD students and the number of Rhodes scholars. The classes are high-quality, and they’re held for small groups.

Sleep and college students often don’t mix well together. In fact, in particularly stressful times, many youngsters are too sleep-deprived for anything – it may even affect their studies negatively. So, when you finally find the time for sleeping, how do you make sure that you will sleep well? Well, with the following tips, you […]

Sleep and college students often don’t mix well together. In fact, in particularly stressful times, many youngsters are too sleep-deprived for anything – it may even affect their studies negatively. So, when you finally find the time for sleeping, how do you make sure that you will sleep well? Well, with the following tips, you will have a way easier time doing so.

  • Use earplugs

Those are cheap, they are very easy to find at a drugstore (or maybe even at the campus bookstore), and they will block out all the noise from the residence hall completely – even that loud, snoring, noisy roommate.

  • Make things dark

Even when your roommate has to be up the entire night writing that important paper, ask him kindly to use a small desk lamp and not disturb you with the main light. And if you are planning to take a quick nap right in the middle of the day, make sure to close the blinds in order to completely darken the room.

  • Listen to calming music

Turn on very soft, unobtrusive music. It will turn out the whole outside world for you and give you some time to contemplate and go to sleep in peace. Relaxation with music is perhaps the most effective way of helping you to focus completely on calming down.

  • Appreciate silence

While music often helps, silence is sometimes even better in terms of quality sleep. Turn off your phone, music, DVD and just fall asleep.

  • Exercise

Being healthy physically will help you sleep better as well. Try getting some exercise into your usual routine, for example, start a habit of walking from the dorm to the campus and back.

At any point in time, college students are usually stressed about something – seems like stress is becoming just a regular part of school life. While it’s natural to find certain things in life stressful, you should still learn to control your emotions and handle heavy situations better. If you follow these tips, you will be able to maximize the enjoyable side of your university life and minimize the problems.

Do not stress about constantly being stressed

This isn’t as ridiculous a tip as it sounds – feeling stressed just because of the sheer volume of stress in your college life is a common problem for a student. You have to fight the urge to stop moving forward because of heavy pressure. Try to let go of the whole situation and just switch your mind off the things that make you stressed.

Get more sleep

For most college students, their sleep schedule is very far from ideal. To handle stress, concentrate on getting more sleep. This will get your mind to refocus, rebalance, and recharge.

Get more food

Similar to the sleep patterns, your college eating habits may also leave much to be desired. If that’s the case, you must create a clear meal schedule, with food consumption spread equally throughout the day. Make sure you watch what exactly you eat, too.

Get some exercise

You might think that with sleeping and eating properly, you definitely do not have the energy and time to exercise. In college, this may be the case, but it’s worth making time for regular workouts, at least for the sake of handling stress better. Exercise will give you more control over emotions and your body in general.

How to Deal with a Professor Who Hates You http://edtechpost.com/how-to-deal-with-a-professor-who-hates-you/ http://edtechpost.com/how-to-deal-with-a-professor-who-hates-you/#comments Mon, 16 Feb 2015 09:28:33 +0000 http://edtechpost.com/?p=3983 Even if you have good intentions and you study hard, you may stumble into a difficult situation at your university when one of the professors seems to hate you for no reason.

Even if you have good intentions and you study hard, you may stumble into a difficult situation at your university when one of the professors seems to hate you for no reason. Obviously, this issue must be taken care of. If you lack experience in solving such problems yourself, read this advice.

Take a step back

You know, there’s still a chance that your professor does not actually hate you, and what you’re facing is merely a study-related disagreement. So, try to let the matter go for a while and it may turn out you don’t have a problem at all. This advice, however, won’t work for serious matters like sexual harassment, which must be addressed to a university authority immediately.

Check for miscommunication and personality clash

By means of reflecting back on when things first started to become very tense with the professor, identify if there has been a certain key moment that caused the relationship shift. If you feel it has been a gradual deterioration, the root of the issue is probably in a drastic personality clash.

Loof for solutions

Worrying about the matter doesn’t bring about positive consequences, so you must take action. But to identify what to do, identify the goal. Imagine the perfect student-professor relationship and see what you must fix to achieve that, or at least get closer.

Make an action plan

List the key action points you must use to improve your relationships with the professor. If you don’t have ideas for the plan, consult a psychologist.

Note! Make sure your action plan has a clear deadline – the date when you know you can’t fight it anymore and you pull the plug. You don’t have to drop the class with the professor – maybe, there’s an option to study with different groups who have other teachers.
