Happy Thursdays don’t make you cool so please stop pretending to be drunk when it’s just 3 in the afternoon.
It is perfectly okay if you’re in CLA. Don’t listen to other people (who are most likely just bitter because we don’t have math subjects except for math appreciation and statistics).
European Studies is not about European culture so wake up and familiarize yourself with EU and international relations jargon. Also, Spanish and French are NOT the only European languages offered. German is also a cool language, you know.
No pekpek shorts and too-short skirts
It’s better if you dress down. Also, it can get cold in the classrooms so better bring a cardigan or a jacket.
When it rains, it floods.
Don’t be so noisy in the elevator.
Do not walk in groups, not just in SJ walk, but everywhere. Some of us don’t have long breaks. Some of us only have ten minutes to spare before going to our next class.
If you have an 8 AM class in Andrew, go to school early to avoid the dreaded elevator traffic.
It is also okay if you choose to be nonpartisan. :)
Tips by the students for the incoming freshmen [Part 1]
BS-CS (IST): DO NOT GIVE UP. talagang mahirap.
AB-ISJ: Mag-aral ng mabuti. JAPALA1 pa lang magseryoso na. Madali lang sa simula pero habang tumatagal ang hirap na. Saka kapag bumagsak ka for example ng JAPALA1, maghihintay ka pa ulit ng 1 year bago kunin yun kasi once a year lang inooffer yun. Kaya mag-aral ng mabuti. Kung nafefeel mo na na ayaw mo na dito sa course na eto, magshift na kaagad para hindi madelay. Saka dapat talaga may passion. Umattend din ng activities ng NKK (org para sa ISJ students) kasi malaking tulong talaga siya. Makipagkaibigan din sa mga upperclass na ISJ. Saka magtulungan din kayong magkakaklase kapag nahihirapan kayo.
BS-CS (ST): Procrastination is your enemy.
BS-CS: You must know every strategies in MATH. You must persevere if you take CS, this course needs a lot of patience and analysis. It is more effective if you have a PROGRAMMING background (at least you know the basics/functions). That’s all. Fun sa CCS. :)
AB-LIM: It’s not as easy as you think :(
BSE-MAT: Alam naming backdoor lang and CED sa DLSU para makapasok. Pero sana sa 2 terms mo na kumukuha ng educ subjects, maenlighten kang maging teacher. :)
BS-PHY (PMD): Sobrang Unique ng Course namin try nyo! specially if you love science wag lang susuko agad kasi madugo talaga :P
AB-ECM: Magaral ng mabuti! Lalo na pagdating sa MATECO! Iwasan si Sir Menaje sa ACTBAS1 and 2, kunin si Marvin Castell sa ECONTWO, paghandaan ang mahihirap na quizzes ni Ms. Krista Yu! :))
BSE-ENG: Prepare for lots of paper works and try to have a background about different behavioral theories. Very useful siya =)
BS-FIN: Wag ka magchill sa 1st term mo. Sa accounting palang mabibigla ka na.
AB-ISJ:“Enjoy, study hard, set priorities right, remember God! Practice Hiragana and Katakana! Do your assignments, don’t cram! Freeloaders are everywhere, and if you’re stuck in that kind of group, don’t hesitate to take all the work! No pain no gain. You’ll learn alot and also you’ll really savor the grade you’ll get especially when its a good score.
Be yourself, really. :( I compromised my behavior for others this 3rd term and I just realized how important it is to be yourself. Maybe I’m just being my negative old self, but whatever, BE YOURSELF. :)”
BS-ECE: Study before you party
BS-CIV: Work hard both sa maths and minors para hindi ma-irreg. for me being an irreg student is one of the worst feelings.
BS-ADV: Enjoy your course and gawin mo lang lahat ng requirements. Wag mag cram, at as much as possible, siguraduhing walang mababagsak na subject/s :)
BS-BSA: Puso lang. Kung gusto mo talaga yung course, kahit tinataboy ka pa niya, ipaglalaban mo :) pero kung di mo choice yun, lipat na.
