Welcome! My name is sgubkid, I’m an SIM-University at Buffalo’s Communication student and this is my first blog. As of Fall 2017, I started to take in new writers as I have already finished school in SIM-UB. Reviews from Fall 2014 to Summer 2017 are written by me. You can read my final post in Fall 2017 here
As this blog is about module reviews, the writers will only post after the end of each semester. Do feel free to ask any questions in the comments section about the modules or even about the SIM-UB programme! 😀
Do share this blog with your fellow SIM-UB friends if you find it useful!
Before this blog was created…
I was an Enthusiastic freshman, Excited and Eagerly waiting for school to start. Why? Because University is a place where I am able to pick the courses that I want to study, customise my own timetable, and take courses from other disciplines, which is a major factor for my decision in choosing UB out of the other schools in SIM. At the same time, the idea of making new friends of various age and backgrounds made me feel uneasy and anxious at the same time. Will I be able to find some friends? If no, who can I turn to for help in my schoolwork? Who can I ask for advice on which module to take, which teacher is good, etc., especially when there is a wide variety of interesting modules offered across the various disciplines in SIM-UB?
Unfortunately, although I have a few close friends and also got to know many other classmates, we are all enrolled in the same semester, thus we take almost the exact same modules. This means that I don’t have anyone to ask for opinions/information for the modules that I might take in the future! This made me think that there are probably others out there who are experiencing the same situation as me.
I don’t know why I thought of writing module reviews for people whom I don’t know, and probably won’t ever know who am I either, but I feel that I want to help others in their decision making process when they pick their modules so they won’t be as clueless about the modules as I was. Also, all of my posts probably don’t benefit me in any way, maybe serve as a memory of my time in SIM-UB? But still, I went ahead with my idea…
And that’s how this blog came about!
But of course, this blog is for anyone and everyone to read. It’s not like you can’t come here to read this blog if you already have a lot of friends/seniors to give you advice. Yep, so come in anytime you want, as many times as you like!
P.S. The words course/module/class are used interchangeably throughout this blog. They all mean the same thing!
