Esteemed Customers,

Greetings to you and best wishes for a wonderful year 2017 ahead.

It is with a deep sense of responsibility and an unquenchable thirst to serve you better that we bring you this notification for a change of name.

We have noticed over time that our company name, much to our dismay, has often been miss-spelt and wrongly sought for on the internet hence the need to act in this fashion. We opted to get a simple, easy to use but catchy name.

As you know, we’re in the service of helping students find off-campus accommodations and roommates around several schools and as a people-service oriented company, we conducted a public poll and a name garnered the highest acceptance amongst other suggested names.

Henceforth, “Studacom.ng” will now be known and addressed as “HostelsVilla.com”. All our services remain the same and yes, we can only get better.

We are poised to come even closer and provide services to you like never before. Get ready, HostelsVilla.com is coming to your vicinity.

Its Okay To Drop A Class

(705) 775-1257

Sometimes students know they are no good in a particular course, and all efforts at stepping up isn’t helping either. Well,  yours truly is here to tell you… It’s okay to drop that class, and redo it next year… Here’s a little story…

I once had a course mate who had issues with a logic course. There really isn’t much of a story behind it: He’s always struggled with math and this particular semester was no different. The class for him had gotten increasingly difficult as the weeks wore on and his performance in it probably wasn’t helped by his demeanor. (Side note: even if you don’t have a tendency to procrastinate in most classes, there will be one, someday, that you just can’t seem to get motivated for.) What he did eventually was withdraw the course, and registered for it again the next session. He ended up having an A.

Some people in his shoes might say “I’m not doing enough, if I just try to convince the rest of me that I haven’t been focusing enough, that I need to work harder, that if I put in a smidge more work and weren’t so lazy, then I could get an A.”

None of those are false, but neither are they completely true. Sometimes your best might still not be enough under certain circumstances. My course mate had been doing enough, but for several reasons it just wasn’t possible for him to succeed in it at the time.

Your inability to do well in a course will most times affect your performance in other classes. Spending an entire weekend working on one course when you have studying, writing, and reading to do in five others is an exercise in futility.

If you can’t spend as much time on this class as you would like to, then drop it, And pick it up next session. And the next time you take it, you will know what content is coming ahead of time. Then, you’ll be better prepared and confident.

A plus side is, You can drop a class without it hurting your GPA. you may dislike the idea of taking a 200 level course in your third year, but I’m quite sure you would dislike a bad grade on your transcript even more…

You may have to pay a fee for dropping the class, but sometimes that fee is worth the stress you would have to go through in other to just scale through that course with a D or an E.

I would recommend taking note of your registrar’s calendar regularly—there are often various points throughout the semester before which you can drop a class without getting a “Withdrawn” on your transcript and/or paying a fee.

It’s kind of hard for anyone to not feel guilty about dropping a class, even though you know that it was your best option. But slowly you’ll get to be okay with it, especially when you subsequently do well in the same course next time round. That’s part of growing up. Like my mom usually says, there’s always next year.

Have a wonderful new week folks…

7 Tips on Writing an Effective Essay


Writing an essay often seems to be a dreaded task among students. Whether the essay is for a scholarship, a class, or maybe even a contest, many students often find the task overwhelming. While an essay is a large project, there are many steps a student can take that will help break down the task into manageable parts. Following this process is the easiest way to draft a successful essay, whatever its purpose might be.

According to 315-653-4105, there are seven steps to writing a successful essay:

1. Pick a topic.

You may have your topic assigned, or you may be given free reign to write on the subject of your choice. If you are given the topic, you should think about the type of paper that you want to produce. Should it be a general overview of the subject or a specific analysis? Narrow your focus if necessary.

If you have not been assigned a topic, you have a little more work to do. However, this opportunity also gives you the advantage to choose a subject that is interesting or relevant to you. First, define your purpose. Is your essay to inform or persuade?

Once you have determined the purpose, you will need to do some research on topics that you find intriguing. Think about your life. What is it that interests you? Jot these subjects down.

Finally, evaluate your options. If your goal is to educate, choose a subject that you have already studied. If your goal is to persuade, choose a subject that you are passionate about. Whatever the mission of the essay, make sure that you are interested in your topic.

2. Prepare an outline or diagram of your ideas.

In order to write a successful essay, you must organize your thoughts. By taking what’s already in your head and putting it to paper, you are able to see connections and links between ideas more clearly. This structure serves as a foundation for your paper. Use either an outline or a diagram to jot down your ideas and organize them.

To create a diagram, write your topic in the middle of your page. Draw three to five lines branching off from this topic and write down your main ideas at the ends of these lines. Draw more lines off these main ideas and include any thoughts you may have on these ideas.

If you prefer to create an outline, write your topic at the top of the page. From there, begin to list your main ideas, leaving space under each one. In this space, make sure to list other smaller ideas that relate to each main idea. Doing this will allow you to see connections and will help you to write a more organized essay.

3. Write your thesis statement.

Now that you have chosen a topic and sorted your ideas into relevant categories, you must create a thesis statement. Your thesis statement tells the reader the point of your essay. Look at your outline or diagram. What are the main ideas?

Your thesis statement will have two parts. The first part states the topic, and the second part states the point of the essay. For instance, if you were writing about Buhari and his impact on the Nigeria, an appropriate thesis statement would be, “Buhari has failed to impact positively on the future of our country through his two tenures as Nigeria’s President.”

4. Write the body.

The body of your essay argues, explains or describes your topic. Each main idea that you wrote in your diagram or outline will become a separate section within the body of your essay.

Each body paragraph will have the same basic structure. Begin by writing one of your main ideas as the introductory sentence. Next, write each of your supporting ideas in sentence format, but leave three or four lines in between each point to come back and give detailed examples to back up your position. Fill in these spaces with relative information that will help link smaller ideas together.

5. Write the introduction.

Now that you have developed your thesis and the overall body of your essay, you must write an introduction. The introduction should attract the reader’s attention and show the focus of your essay.

Begin with an attention grabber. You can use shocking information, dialogue, a story, a quote, or a simple summary of your topic. Whichever angle you choose, make sure that it ties in with your thesis statement, which will be included as the last sentence of your introduction.

6. Write the conclusion.

The conclusion brings closure of the topic and sums up your overall ideas while providing a final perspective on your topic. Your conclusion should consist of three to five strong sentences. Simply review your main points and provide reinforcement of your thesis.

7. Add the finishing touches.

After writing your conclusion, you might think that you have completed your essay. Wrong. Before you consider this a finished work, you must pay attention to all the small details.

Check the order of your paragraphs. Your strongest points should be the first and last paragraphs within the body, with the others falling in the middle. Also, make sure that your paragraph order makes sense. If your essay is describing a process, such as how to make a great chocolate cake, make sure that your paragraphs fall in the correct order.

Review the instructions for your essay, if applicable. Many teachers and scholarship forms follow different formats, and you must double check instructions to ensure that your essay is in the desired format.

Finally, review what you have written. Reread your paper and check to see if it makes sense. Make sure that sentence flow is smooth and add phrases to help connect thoughts or ideas. Check your essay for grammar and spelling mistakes.

Congratulations! You have just written a great essay. Happy New month folks!
