Tips to Help You Stay Healthy and Focused in Pursuit of a Higher Education

While the years you spend at college and graduate school can be amongst the most exciting and rewarding of your life, they can also be filled from time to time with stress, headaches, and several serious episodes of sleeplessness. Whether you're enrolled in the Masters of Computer Science program here at Seattle University or are pursuing a software engineering degree, there are several effective steps that you can take in order to improve both your physical and mental health as a student. Here are some of our top tips for staying healthy and focused while in pursuit of a higher education:

Stick to a Balanced Diet

If you're living in a dorm room or you're living on a budget, it can be tough to follow a balanced diet. Several simple ways to get the nutrition your body and brain need to study effectively are to check out healthy food options on campus and to switch out vending machine snacks like chocolate bars for vitamin- and calcium-rich yogurt, nuts, or dried fruit.

Make Time for Exercise

No matter how busy your graduate school schedule is, it's important that you take time out to engage in physical exercise. Exercise offers numerous rewards such as a boost in endorphins and better sleep quality. Easy ways to break a sweat include visiting the campus recreational center or going on an afternoon hike with friends.

Find a Peaceful Place to Study

Are you finding it difficult to focus in your dorm room? If your cabin fever is making it hard for you to concentrate, then be sure to change up your study location every now and then. Students in the Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering can use any of the university's libraries or hit the books in a nearby cafe.

The Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering at Seattle University offers an exciting and challenging atmosphere for each of our graduate students. If you're interested in learning more about student life while enrolled in one of our programs, then be sure to call us today at (206) 452-2262. 

Computer Science from a Woman's Perspective

When many people think about the typical computer scientist, they often picture a creative and analytical young man applying his skills to create an answer to a technological problem. It's important for those less familiar with the world of computer science, however, to note that this field is not solely represented by men and is becoming a popular choice for innovative young women as well. In fact, the Seattle University Computer Science department faculty is 50% women. As you will see in this video, women in computer science play a major role in the development of new software each year.

Women studying computer science in graduate school can expect a future career that involves research and the application of scientific and mathematical theories. Such a career allows them to make their stamp in history and fulfill personal goals they set for themselves as young girls.

If you're a woman interested in a career in computer science, then come visit Seattle University's Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering. You can also learn more about our academic programs by calling (206) 452-2262.

Enhanced Job Prospects

The technology industry is one of the fastest-growing sectors in today’s economy, and the demand for skilled programmers and software designers shows no signs of decreasing. Obtaining a Master’s degree in the field will make you an even more attractive candidate to many companies, and set you apart from the many applicants who only hold a Bachelor’s.

Higher Earning Potential

While an applicant with an M.A. in the humanities or social sciences may seem overqualified for office work and ill-suited for technical work, an applicant with an M.S. in computer science or software engineering adds tangible value to a company. This is because these degrees demonstrate that a candidate has practical knowledge of coding and software design, so he or she will make concrete contributions to the company.

Industry Connections

Many leading companies in the technology sector offer internship programs to students currently pursuing graduate degrees in computer science. Even though you won’t earn a fortune as an intern, you will gain valuable industry experience and also have the opportunity to meet people who already work in the field. Your performance as an intern can lead to lucrative job offers after you complete your degree, and the connections you make can be very valuable for your future career.
