yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
I've been struggling to find scholarships available to 2nd Year Art History Undergrads in Canada. I would really appreciate it if someone could lead me in the right direction. I have worked hard to get a 3.7 GPA while dealing with financial stress. I really need a scholarship to get over the financial stress in the next year and focus more on learning and my career goals.
If you have any useful web-links, please feel free to share.
I was wondering if anybody knew about the UBC Media Studies program?
It combines: Art History and Visual Art Creative Writing Journalism Film Studies Film Production Information Studies Critical Theory – English Dept., German Dept. Computer Science
It is everything I am interested in, but I am afraid that it would be another arts degree where I may struggle to find a job after graduation. What is your opinion?
