Students graduate early, pursue other opportunities

first_imgBecause of the current economic climate and the high rate of tuition at Notre Dame, some seniors have chosen to graduate at the end of this semester rather than in May. Senior finance major Alex Vander Linde said his decision to graduate early was primarily financial. “The reason I decided to graduate early was because I had the credits to do so and because I did not want to spend another $25,000 on tuition if I did not have to,” Vander Linde said. “I came into Notre Dame with 18 AP credits and have taken 15 credits every semester never dropping a class. I currently have exactly enough credits to graduate.” Vander Linde said he will remain in South Bend and continue with his part-time job on campus while crossing off some other bucket list items. “I do plan on visiting friends at other universities, going skiing and traveling abroad given the amount of time I have before I start my job at the end of June,” he said. “While in South Bend I will continue working my part time job in the development department and hope to find a hobby and several charities to occupy my time while others are in class.” Senior Brendan Sullivan said despite spending the spring 2012 semester in London, he was able to complete his political science major early, with some help from the 14 AP credits with which he came to Notre Dame. “It wasn’t like I did any special planning. It just kind of worked out that way,” Sullivan said. “I realized last year, ‘Oh wow, I can graduate early.’” Sullivan said he also plans to stay in South Bend and get a job while continuing to live in his same off-campus house. “In a lot of ways I’ll be getting next semester all the easy parts about being a student and not all the hard parts,” he said. Senior philosophy and gender studies major Christina Genovese said she is planning to work in Chicago beginning in February. “I interned at a law firm this past summer, so I’m planning to go back there and do that for a year and a half,” Genovese said. “Then I would go to law school.” Genovese said being in Chicago will allow her to visit campus frequently. “I figure if I’ll be in Chicago, I’ll probably just visit school most weekends,” she said. The school does not sponsor an official graduation ceremony for those who graduate in December, but Genovese said early graduates get to walk with their peers in May. “I’m excited to be in Chicago, and it’s nice that you can still walk with your class in graduation and come back for Senior Week and all that,” she said. Even though he will miss seeing his friends in class every day, Vander Linde said he has no regrets about graduating early. “I view it as a privilege that not many people have and am grateful for the time off,” he said. “This will probably be the last time in my life when I have six months with absolutely no obligations and when I can truly do anything I want. I look forward to having a great time with my friends and doing things that truly make myself happy and help others less fortunate than myself.”last_img read more

Credit unions have the advantage in both user experience and security

first_img 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The magic of mobile person-to-person (P2P) payment technology is making consumers’ lives easier than ever, allowing them to transfer funds from one account to another using just a smart phone.Consumer behavior is clearly changing due to P2P, with enormous fraud-related concerns for both the member and the financial institution. There is just as clearly a huge opportunity for credit unions in mobile payments technologies. It’s our time to grab that opportunity with both hands.“Technology is virtualizing money,” said Ryan Zilker, business manager, product development for CO-OP Financial Services. “We have quickly gone from cash to cards and now to P2P transfers that allow us to send money instantly to anyone, anywhere. This market is growing fast, and there is a lot of push to get into it from several different directions.” continue reading »last_img read more

Guus Hiddink wants to see all his players take leading roles with Chelsea

first_img The ailing Barclays Premier League champions have turned to the Dutchman for a second time after naming him interim manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last month. Six years ago he helped steady Chelsea in the wake of Luiz Felipe Scolari’s departure and of that squad, only John Terry and John Obi Mikel remain. Among the reasons cited for Chelsea’s difficulties this season is the drop in form of Eden Hazard, the team’s playmaker-in-chief who will start Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Hiddink has not spoken at length with Hazard in an attempt to discover the source of his slump – but is confident he will soon begin firing once again. “First of all I think Eden is very versatile, he can play in various positions. On the wing he might give his best performances,” Hiddink said. “I haven’t experienced him as a coach in the past, but now I’ve had him just a few days because he was injured. He came back with a strong character and wanted to play. He is back in shape. “Normally, if a player has been injured he likes to take time to get into good physical and mental shape, but he was eager to play against Watford. “You could see when he was warming up, looking at me saying: ‘bring me on, bring me on’. That is an indication he can get back to the performance levels we are used to. “I’m not a psychologist who tells players to come in and lie on the couch and then I assess them you professionally. “I have short conversations in the dressing room or on the pitch. That’s when you smell how they feel and how eager they are. Eden smells well.” Guus Hiddink insists his Chelsea players must develop the on-field tactical leadership that was evident during his last spell at Stamford Bridge. Hiddink insists a manager has only limited influence from the bench and wants his players to take command when the whistle blows. “This team is a bit different to 2009. I’m not going to say worse or better, but different,” Hiddink said. “It was a bit easier last time because we weren’t down in the table and there were players with big international experience. “Look at the spine of that team – Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard, John Obi Mikel, Alex. The centre was strong. It was a different team with different personalities. “What I’m asking now of players, is that they take the lead from central defence into midfield. “They must demand that of each other, not just in their commitment because they’re all committed – I’ve seen their intensity in training and in games – but also tactically because you can do a lot with two or three words to your companion in front of you. “People think we have a lot of power on the bench, but that’s not true. You can just prepare the team and make the substitutions. “I want the players to be in charge. To compare, there were a few more guys who took that tactical lead the last time I was here. Now I’m asking these guys to take the lead.” Press Associationlast_img read more
