Being able to get into the swing of classes hasn’t really been hard for me. I’ve just been struggling with taking time to manage my assignments and my social life.
I have definitely fallen in love with all of my classes and professors. They have given me so much insight and have encouraged me to get organized.
I also enjoy hanging out with friends and getting involved with stuff happening on campus. Since the second week of classes, I have been planning out my day on a white board—that way I never forget an assignment, test, paper or even a social event. It’s little things like that help with time management.
I find that it is easy to forget stuff and completely fall behind. So I would advise you to write it ALL down in a planner or on a white board like me.
Jayla Beechaum graduated from Richmond Community High School. Her favorite classes there were anatomy and biology, and she was involved in Student Government, Math Honor Society, Robotics Club and the Environmental Club—to name just a few.
Jayla will be focusing on her studies as she works toward her goal of going to medical school—she’s majoring in biology—but she’s also taking time for other things important to her. Like hauling in and storing away the 15 pairs of shoes she brought with her on move-in day (with more on the way) and working in the admissions office.
Here are some random interesting facts from Jayla about herself:
- My favorite pastime is listening to music and running. I like being able to clear my head while being active.
- My favorite movie in the world is The Lion King. The first time I watched it, I cried when Mufasa died.
- I like hanging out and meeting new people. So if you see me, just say HEY!
