The Sitting Disease

In modern times, sitting for an extended period of time does not mean that you are a couch potato. With technology just a click away, it is easier for students to spend hours sitting down doing homework, reading, or doing research. Recent studies have shown that sitting for prolonged hours can lead to health risks or even a shorter life span. Here on campus, there are new technologies to enable students to spend less time sitting and more time moving.

ESL and Employment

UTA is a very diverse campus and we have people from all sorts of backgrounds coming to this school and some have English as a second language. Does that give a person an advantage or can  it become a disadvantage when it comes to finding  a future job and what is there first language. Communication is necessary in society and language plays an important part in it but does it come into play when you are looking for a job.

More often employers are looking at a potential hire and see what he can bring to the job and if you are bilingual you have upper hand in getting the a job you want
