Getting an A+ is Just For Decoration
Currently at Queens College, there is no difference between an “A” grade and an “A+” grade. Sure, it may look nicer when your future employer looks down your transcript and sees a long string of A+’s, yet they might stop at the bottom and wonder why your cumulative gpa wasn’t higher. For many students looking to go to graduate school and apply for jobs, one or two bad classes could ruin what would otherwise be a perfect gpa.
Apathy: The Road of Lost Opportunity
As one of the most diverse campuses in the United States, Queens College offers a potpourri of various clubs and organizations to choose from. No matter who you are or what your interests might be, you are sure to find a club that suits you. And even if you can’t locate that eccentric club you always wanted to be a part of, the Office of Student Life is more than happy to work with you to make the club of your dreams a reality. Yet, amazingly, very few students choose to take advantage of all the clubs that Queens College has to offer. Instead, they delude themselves into believing that what is truly essential for their future careers are solely the classes they take.
