The Fat Campus Collection of Guides for College Students

 
The editors at Fat Campus have put together a series providing solid, useful advice and information presented in a concise and easy to read manner. These guides range from academic strategies to financing your college education to moving beyond the university and into the job market. Topics include:
  • Choosing a Major - Your choice of a major is an important decision. It has both long and short term consequences that should be examined carefully in the decision making progress. Not only will your major play a role in your ultimate career path, it also most immediately determines how you interact with your college or university as well as your intellectual development.
     
  • Citing Material From the Internet - material found on the internet has it's own unique difficulties when it comes to using it as a source for a research paper. Our step by step guide helps to clear up the ambiguities.
     
  • Making Classroom Presentations - Some classes require that you give a presentation as a part of classroom participation or sometimes for extra credit. This can be intimidating and even frightening to some students, especially those who are not experienced in public speaking. We have collected the best information we could find on the subject, distilled it, added tactics garnered from our own experience and present it to you.
     
  • Computer Virus, Adware & Spyware Protection - In the time we have been poking around the internet we've learned this one lesson. No matter how careful you might be, you will pick up adware and spyware from somewhere, somehow and without knowing it. See what we do to get rid of it and protect from getting it.
     
  • Directives and Terms Used in Writing and Test Taking - Some words are "directives" used by instructors when they want you to to answer a question, prepare a report or write a paper in a particular way. Knowing the definitions of these directives and then presenting the information asked for in the correct way will help to insure that you get the grade that your hard work deserves.
     
  • Establishing Credit - It seems funny, but now is the very best time to establish credit, when you are still a student. If you wait too long, graduate and get a job, it is much harder to qualify for a credit card or a loan. This is because the banks look at a student's potential while they look at the reality of that entry level job held by the recently graduated worker.
     
  • A Complete Guide to Student Loans - An explanation of the types of student loans, who administers them, who qualifies for them and how they are applied for.
     
  • Instructor Relations - Getting along with your instructor can have benefits both in and out of the classroom.
     
  • Job Search Advice - There are techniques involved in getting that dream job or internship. We've distilled them and listed them on one easy to read and understand page.
     
  • Reading Difficult Material - It's  bound to happen at one time or another. Your instructor assigns a text that is so dense, poorly written or follows a train of logic that you never got on. You know that there is information in there that is important to the subject. You will be required to discuss it in class, write about it in a paper or, heaven forbid, understand it well enough to deal with it on an exam. With that in mind, we have constructed this step by step guide to help you make sense of difficult material.
     
  • Scholarship Search Advice - Yes, there are thousands of scholarships out there just waiting for students to find them. Yes, there are scholarships that never get awarded because no one applies for them. And yes, many scholarships do not take financial need or academic success into account. But, no, this does not mean that all you have to do is fill out an online form and the offers will come pouring in. We have several suggestions to jump start your scholarship search.
     
  • Using the Scientific Method - The scientific method is a process for forming and testing solutions to problems, or theorizing about how or why things work.  It tries to reduce the influence of "faith" or bias or prejudice of the experimenter so that the process is valid anywhere in our world.
     
  • Student Loan Consolidation Congress set up the Consolidation Loans Programs to allow student loan borrowers to combine their loans into a single new loan with flexible repayment and extended loan repayment features.
     
  • Study Abroad Tips - We consulted our expert, a three time veteran educational traveler and asked for her top ten tips for students planning to study abroad.
     
  • Studying Advice - To make the your academic experience rewarding in terms of knowledge gained and grades received, itís necessary to spend time studying. In collegiate life nothing is handed to you on a platter. If you want academic success it is necessary to get it on your own. Our guide to studying is designed to help you with that pursuit.
     
  • Successful Student Habits - 10 habits most successful students have. How many do you have?
     
  • Test Taking Strategies - For multiple choice, essay and true false tests.
     
  • Writing a Paper - You have a paper to write. It doesnít matter how many pages it is or what the topic is, the basics are always the same.
     
  • Writing a Thesis Statement - In most cases the essay or paper you will write for a college level course will require a thesis statement. In fact the thesis statement is the foundation of a quality essay and a necessary component for receiving the best grade possible.
