  2. Hi everyone, Michelle here!

    The upcoming school year I am starting a YouTube channel for MSMU. Our school has one by employees but I made one by students for students. If you have any questions or tips you want to ask please email me at: and I will be posting videos once a week whenever I can (depending on my class and work schedule). I highly recommend this for incoming freshmen. If you have and questions feel free to contact me. Videos will start airing when school starts! Don’t forget to subscribe! :)

    Mount St. Mary’s College wishes our current students and our followers a happy and relaxing summer break.  Remember to stay cool!  Our bloggers will start posting regularly in August!  See you then!

  3. Hello everyone! 

    For the next school year I will be starting a vlog for my life at Mount Saint Mary’s College. I know it says Mount Saint Mary’s University, that is because there was a unanimous vote from the board of the name change! So January 1, 2015 we will be known as Mount Saint Mary’s University. We also have an original YouTube channel ran by the staff. I wanted to create one that was made by a student for students so it will be more interactive. In this channel I would be posting what happens during the semester, talking to staff for resources, and other student for college tips. Please keep in mind, I also have my personal channel so I will be posting videos when I can and post them here on Tumblr as well. Please subscribe and let’s looks forward to the upcoming school year!

  4. Hints for Good Note Taking

    Ten Basic Steps

    1. Don’t write down everything that you read or hear. Be alert and attentive to the main points.  Concentrate on the “meat” of the subjects and forget the “trimmings.”
    2. Notes should consist of key words, or very short sentences. As a speaker gets sidetracked you can go back and add further information.
    3. Take accurate notes.  You should usually use your own words, but try not to change the meaning. If you quote directly from the author, quote correctly and record the citation.
    4. Think a minute about your material before you start making notes. Don’t take notes just to be taking notes! Take notes that will be of real value to you when you look over them later.
    5. Have a uniform system of punctuation and abbreviation that will make sense to you. Use a skeletal outline and show importance by indenting.  Leave white space for later additions.
    6. Omit descriptions and full explanations. Keep your notes short and to the point. Condense your material so you can grasp it rapidly.
    7. Do not worry about missing a point. Leave space and try to pick up the material you miss at a later date, either through reading, questioning, or common sense.
    8. Don’t keep notes on oddly shaped pieces of paper.  Keep notes in order and in one place.
    9. Shortly after making your notes, go back and rework (not recopy!) your notes by adding extra points, spelling out unclear items, etc.  Remember, we forget quickly. Budget time for this vital step just as you do for the class itself.
    10. Review your notes periodically. This is the only way to achieve lasting memory.
    Good luck incoming freshmen! - Michelle Balingit
