Hey everyone. It is almost time for us all to head towards University/College and start connecting alot with people. I would like to actively invite people to connect with me on Linkedin! LinkedIn is a very good place for like minded people in similar fields to connect and interact. Please connect with my Linkedin!
I've been looking faarrr and wide for an answer, on like android forums & whatnot, but can't seem to find one... so gonna try my luck in a student forum! lol. you guys have technological knowledge, so why not give it a try?
so many humble thanks in advance if you read this and you've got an answer. I'm desperate. and my mom's gonna whoop my ass if I try to get a new one (currently saving all the meager $$ I got for uni tuition, ain't gonna spend it on a phone).
I have a TTC metro pass (it's a card for public transit in Toronto) and like credit cards or library cards or whatever, it has a magnetic strip on the back.
Now i've been keeping it in the back of my phone case for convenience. The magnetic strip side is facing the back of the phone.
I've been keeping it like this for the whole month now, and just recently a strip of surface area on the phone screen doesn't seem to be working. Can't press anything in that expanse of phone screen, particularly the middle. I downloaded a screen touch test app, and the whole screen is responsive except for that strip down the phone screen.
Initially I chalked it up to the fact that I updated this 2 year old nexus 4 to android 5 (lollipop) some time ago and it was just glitching, but when I took the metro pass out, I realised that the strip of irritatingly unresponsive phone surface was also suspiciously the same area where the magnetic strip on the card is placed.
So naturally, I attempted googling this foolishness up, but to no avail.
could anyone let me know if it's possible for a magnetic strip to affect a phone's touch screen? just so I can explain to my mother as she writes me out of the family will for wasting money? thanks guys, just been tearing my hair out for the past couple of hours.
Which laptop you guys think would be the best for a university student? I was thinking about a mac book because they seem like good quality and are really light and I like the macs I use at my high school.
But for some reason my parents hate the idea of mac books and instead they want to buy me some windows laptop that is $1300 or a Samsung series 9 laptop
I'm going into fashion and graphic design.
I went to a presentation at my future school and the professors said a macbook would be the best laptop for us to get.
I'm planning on going to U of G, and just wondering about other peoples' experiences at Guelph. Academics/Classes, Profs, Campus, studentlife, atmosphere etc. If you could comment about your experience and what program you were in that would be great, thanks in advance!
Parents recently bought a house 9 minutes away by car from UWO so their probably expecting to me to live at home. However, I really want to stay on residence at least for First-Year. Is it worth the extra cost? Will I be missing out on a lot if I commute? Or is the cost of maintaining my own car & parking about the same?
As an example, the university of Guelph does not allow you to bring in your own microwave or even toaster oven or hot plate in your dorm unless you live in the East res townhouses with kitchens. The dorms each have kitchens on the main floor which must be signed out (not really that practical). Many dorms don't have actual kitchens on the floor where a sink/microwave would be. I find this a bit ridiculous tbh, you can't microwave something or even watch the dish if you could.
But imo, this seems a bit fishy in terms of a money scheme. The uni doesn't want res students to be allowed microwaves or other kitchen appliances because it would mean that the students would be relying less on housing services for food and saving $ (there's also a mandatory meal plan).
At other universities, I've noticed similar schemes. If these schools are charging so much for rent, at least they should provide something outside of just the basic dorm. I'm quite disappointed at how they take advantage of students many of whom are living away from home. I'm sure others have seen this too and the prices are the worst.
The price of a slice of pizza at Pizza Pizza for example will often cost more than the exact same thing at a regular Pizza Pizza. Anyone know of any other schemes which they use to their advantage?
Hi!! I'm exploring my options for potentially studying at the University of Guelph. I'm thinking my best option finacially is living off campus, but I'm worried that I'll miss out on some of the "college experience".For anybody that lives off campus while attending a University, doesn't neccessarily have to be Guelph, how'd you make the most of it? Is it fairly easy to make friends and be involved with everything even when you are not on campus 24-7?
Just curious of the hobbies you guys do other than academics? Anything you used to do would be interesting as well. For me I break-dance, ballroom dance and hit the weight room. I used to take kung-fu classes but I stopped it in the beginning of grade 9 and I played guitar in grade 7-11 but stopped it in grade 12. On the other hand I'm starting Brazilian jujitsu this Monday and I'm planning to get serious with it.
