North Texas Food Bank

Tarleton State University Global Campus is very proud to serve as a Social Media Ambassador for the North Texas Food Bank. The NTFB serves 13 counties including Dallas, Denton, Collin and Kaufman and provides over 60 million meals a year. 

If you are looking for a way to give back this summer, we suggest participating in the Summer Hunger Campaign. The summer months are the hungriest for kids out of school who are unable to receive their free or reduced school lunch and breakfast.

Those Pesky Electives

As I am nearing the completion of my graduate degree I can feel myself plateauing. With only 9 hours separating me from the August graduation ceremony I am struggling to maintain the proper work/school/life balance that so many of you can relate to. With registration a week and a half away I began looking at the course listings for the summer and trying to create a course load that would keep me engaged. As an undergrad I despised electives, I saw them as a waste of time, they were not pertinent to my specific degree so I mentally checked out of those classes. Now a bit older and more aware of what I want to do with my life I view these electives as a nice change of pace.

The degree I am currently pursuing (MS in Management & Leadership) is obviously primarily focused on management classes, although we are required to take one human resources course. That HR course, which I took last fall, exceeded all of my expectations, I never thought that I would thoroughly enjoy anything related to the field of human resources. That class was so enjoyable and interesting to me that I made an A and still collaborate with my professor. My experience with that course is what has led me to choose HR courses as my last two electives. Nearing the end of a degree is difficult in itself, and summer courses just compound that, so I am going to finish strong studying a subject that truly intrigues me.

So, for any of you out there pushing towards the completion of your degree, find that subject or topic that sparks your interest and flame the fire. Consult with your program advisor about trying out an elective from another college such as education or liberal & fine arts. Keep yourself engaged and focused by trying something new.

Taking Care of it All

I came across this Ted Talk today and I knew that it needed to be shared. Dr. Guy Winch, a psychologist and author, discussed the importance of taking care of your emotional hygiene. Whenever we deal with a physical aliment we take medicine or visit a doctor, but many of us do not treat our emotional health the same way.

As online learners, we deal with our fair share of stress, doubt and at times negativity. Take some time today and listen to this 18 minute talk and think of all the ways that you can take care of your emotional hygiene.

What areas of your personal hygiene do you want to improve upon?

Online Learner Profile

Who are our students? That is something we think about as we interact with our online students daily, via email, social media, or the rare occasion of a phone call. Since we hardly ever get the chance to meet with our online students face-to-face, we like to utilize different mediums to learn who you are. 

Online learners are parents, managers, volunteers, executives, and in this case, a student body president. Meet Jay Johnson, a third generation Tarleton student who is pursuing his master's degree in Management and Leadership online in order to carry out his duties within the Student Government Association as well as work for Tarleton's Career Services Department.

Are you interested in sharing your Tarleton Story as an online learner? We would love to hear from you! Contact us here!
