Manners Monday: The Interrupt-inator

On April 14, 2014, in Uncategorized, by Mrs. A.

As a parent of a second grader, I have watched many eposides of Phineas and Ferb. My favorite character is Dr. Doofenschmirtz, mostly because I like his accent. For this week’s Manners Monday post, we hear from Emily Post:

How we speak is just as important as what we actually say. And what we choose not to say may be just as powerful as what we do. People who converse well think clearly before sharing their thoughts and ideas and are able to respectfully listen when it is not their turn to talk. Whether you are speaking for pleasure, out of sympathy, or in business, remember that it takes more than one person to have a conversation.

Take Time Tuesday: Pinterest

On April 8, 2014, in Uncategorized, by Mrs. A.

I have a lot of conversations with students about censoring their social media profiles and using their privacy settings. Students on Pinterest need to be appropriate in the links and pictures they are posting. If you are not 21, it’s not a great decision to have Miller Lite pinned to your site. However, Pinterest can be a GREAT way to organize links, pictures, and articles about your life or planning for your future. Many colleges and companies have Pinterest sites that you can pin to your site. This helps you to stay organized by having a lot of information easily accessible (and pretty!) all in one spot! You can also search other Pinterest sites for resume samples, college career centers, your top colleges, scholarships, scholarship essay samples, and more! Happy pinning!


Manners Monday: Your Email Address

On April 7, 2014, in Uncategorized, by Mrs. A.

The business world (including higher education) works in the world of email. Your college financial aid package is not texted to you, it’s sent in an email. You’re not going to find out you qualified for a scholarship through a text, it will be emailed to you. Therefore, you need an apporpriate email address – and then you actually have to check that email! is not professional, and neither is You need to act professionally and appropriately in the job search and college/scholarship application process. Prove you are a professional with a professional email account name. One thing to keep in mind is where you are applying. If you are applying for a UND scholarship, your email address should not be Happy Emailing! (Go Bison!)
