Plaza College’s very own Professor Jonathan Howle is named Queens person of the week and well deserved at that.
There’s no doubt that there are only good things to say about Professor Howle. To sum up the interview on NY1 it was said that Professor Howle is  always lending a helping hand and going beyond the call of duty as a professor always giving 110%.
To say you can go to Professor Howle for anything is and understatement. He has reached into his own pocket to lend out money to a student in  need. How many professors do you know that do that?
He plays an active role on campus and his community and gets all of his drive from hisstudents who he says he can’t do anything without.
I think we can all agree with Charles Callahan- director of strategy of Plaza collegewhen says  he has a quality you don’t find in many professors. A big  congratulations to Professor Howle!
If only there were more professors like Jonathon Howle,  great pick for Queens Person of the Week!

Finals are here and I’m sure most of you are under a lot of pressure. It’s important to prepare and do well this time of the year but keep in mind it’s also very important to limit stress and have a clear state of mind.

The first step in any final exam study strategy should always start with keeping your stress in check. Below are some tips that any student should keep in mind, final exam week or not.

1) Never focus on being stressed
Focusing on being stressed will only make matters worse. Rather than focusing on how many exams you need to take, how much studying needs to be done, focus on how to limit the stress and workload. Get organized and focused. Set up a schedule for yourself and make sure to take breaks!

2) Get a sufficient amount of sleep
Balancing every day life and school can be tough. It’s very important to get enough sleep so you’re always sharp. Most adults need between 7 and 8 hours of sleep.

3) Eat the right food It’s not only important to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner on a regular schedule, but it’s also important to eat the right kinds of foods that will keep you satisfied and alert throughout the day. Also keep in mind if you have a full day of exams ahead, always keep healthy snacks and water available so you never feel tired and hungry.



4) Set aside some quiet time
School and life’s other frustrations are guaranteed to take up your time and sometimes wear on your emotions so it’s important to set aside some time to just relax. That means without any distractions such as cell phones, roommates, or crowds. It can really make a huge difference on stress levels when you stop and take a moment to relax in a quiet place.

5) Get the help you need
Finals can be tough but one guarantee is that there are always professors or other students willing to help. Instead of dwelling on what you can’t handle, never hesitate to ask for help.

Keeping these tips in mind throughout the week should help keep your stress in check. Stay focused and relaxed… Good luck!

PhotobucketThe term spring cleaning might ring a bell to clean your room, store away winter clothes, maybe sell your old textbooks? Have you thought that this spring may be a good idea to not only clean your room but to spruce up your online image? It’s inevitable that your Facebook page can make or break your image online but most importantly offline. If you’re not in the process of job searching, it’s likely that you will be soon. Now is the time to clean up your Facebook page and tidy up your online image. When you submit your resume, I’m sure your Facebook page doesn’t cross your mind…but it should! Facebook is the first place businesses are looking to get the low down on you! It’s time to take down those embarrassing photos and tweak your privacy settings. Do a Google search of your name. Basically, clean up anything that could be creating a negative impression! You should also update your LinkedIn account and network with other college students at your school and business professionals in your field of study. The time of year for spring cleaning is here so clean your online image up! Oh yeah..and don’t forget to clean your room!
