Getting Ready to Graduate Workshop

 

Texas Wesleyan University held a workshop on Thursday for students seeking information on the graduation process and what steps they should be taking to be best prepared.

The workshop was led by assistant registrar Linda Humphrey who spoke to students in detail about the steps they should take to best prepare themselves for graduation in the least stressful way possible.

“I want graduation to be an exciting time, not bad news bears time,” Humphrey said.

Humphrey said that the best way for her to help students is to give them as much information as possible.

“The more information, the more options students will have,” said Humphrey.

Texas Wesleyan freshman Kayla Hayes said the workshop taught her about the graduation process and gave her valuable information that she’ll be able to use when her senior year comes around.

Hayes, education major, said she originally came to the workshop for her freshman success class but was pleased with the beneficial information she had received.

“I know more about the whole graduation process than I did coming in,” said Hayes. “It’ll definitely benefit me in 3 years when I’m getting ready to graduate,” said Hayes.

Senior Pat Listach said he came to the workshop in hopes of having some of his questions answered.

Listach, criminal justice major, said he came in confused about certain deadlines for paperwork and was able to get detailed information from the packet Humphrey had put together.

“I’m glad I took the time to come today,” Listach said.

“During my sophomore year at Tom Bean High School I was labeled as a wanna be black person. I was on the basketball team and had multiple black friends from different summer teams I had played on. I would hang around them and I guess that got people thinking I was trying to be something that I’m not. I remember being the only white guy at school who would listen to rap music and because of that everyone started calling me a wigger. It wasn’t the worst thing in the world but it definitely got annoying. It lasted for the rest of my sophomore year then started to die down a bit.”

IMG_1373My name is Jeremy and I am a student-athlete at North Lake College. I am a sophomore communications major who plans on transferring to a four-year university on a basketball scholarship. I am still undecided on where I will be attending next year but I plan to make my decision in the next couple of months.

I am a 6’5″ shooting guard who shoots about 40% from the three point line but can also do a bit of everything. I can score from anywhere on the court and I have a great feel for the game. I have proven that I can score against top teams by having multiple 20+ point games against D1 Juco competition.

I have a high basketball IQ and typically know the best play to make. I am more athletic than some people expect and I use that sneaky athleticism to my advantage on the boards and my finishes.

Now that the season is over I plan on improving my all around game, but mainly my ball handling, strength, and overall athleticism. I worked really hard this past off-season and won the conferences “Most Improved Player” award and I plan to make this same level of improvement this next off-season.
