Vocabulary Terms for Non-Traditional Students

eyelashI'm getting ready for class, loading up my wife's old messenger bag with all my books and folders, pens and highlighters. In some ways, I feel like I'm 10 years old again. One look in the mirror savagely reminds me that I'm not.

It's interesting how some things about school just never change. I have to think about things now that I haven't thought about seriously in over 20 years. Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I do have a list...

Making Mistakes

1500mistakes"If You're Not Making Mistakes, then You're Not Doing Anything."

This quote belongs to Hall of Fame basketball player/coach John Wooden, who was not only well aware that it's okay to regularly make mistakes but that you're doing something wrong if you don't.

It's easy to expect perfection from ourselves and/or fear the judgment that comes with screwing things up, but even at its worst we learn from those errors. That's not a new concept by any means, but it's one often forgotten. Mistakes are an indicator that you're actually trying to succeed, so without them you're not doing much of anything at all (and probably making yourself much less happy in the process).

Student Organization Memberships

handshakeAre you Serious about your Career?

As you get out into the workforce you’ll realize more and more that you don’t actually know everything. This can be very scary, at first, but with time you’ll also realize that you don’t have to. 

Our fields are full of highly intelligent and highly creative people that love to share. We share knowledge, we share ideas (good and bad), and we share experiences. Success as a technical professional is in large part based on our membership and involvement with the technical community as a whole. Ultimately, we receive as much as we give.

There is no better way to start building your network of contacts than by joining an industry recognized professional organization.  Several of these organizations offer student membership as well, to name a few:

  1. IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)
  2. ETA (Electronics Technician Association)
  3. ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association)
  4. ISSA (Information Systems Security Association)
