PBL Vision & Career – Blog Post 6

Managing University Life Episode 6 Blog Post
  • Review Episode 6 of MUL below and answer the question(s).
  • On Wednesday, June 13 you will be submitting a written assignment on one of the issues discussed in Episodes 1-6. Write a paper of about 750 words discussing how this problem is a factor at Hanyang ERICA, and how it might be solved. Be specific and do some research– “The university should fix poor eating habits by encouraging students to eat better” isn’t a realistic or detailed solution.

Choose one of the following questions and write a post of about 100-200 words answering it. There are no right or wrong answers; give your opinion, or respond to someone else’s post.

  1. “Education is not something you buy or receive—it must be earned, just like fitness.” What does this mean, and how is becoming educated like becoming physically fit?
  2. Write an imaginary e-mail to a professor to ask for something, using polite language; or, write an imaginary cover letter for an internship or program.
  3. If asked in an interview, “what is your greatest weakness?”, if you answer “I like to work too hard!” the interview will just think you are lying. What is a better answer that you could personally use yourself?

  2. You’re having a good time at the party/M.T. but you’ve had enough alcohol for the night. How can you avoid drinking more alcohol if you don’t want to? List some strategies you might try, or recommend.
  3. One of your friends obviously has a caffeine addiction, and can’t get through the day without huge amounts of soda and coffee. Saying “drink less” isn’t going to help. What other advice can you give to help?
