Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am Miss Monte and I am answering a few of your questions. Please submit more and I would be glad to answer!
1.) What’s a fun cultural diversity class to take?
Some classes students can take are American Sign Language and any language classes. Taking a language other than English shows you can grow as a person and looks really good on job applications. Learning ASL for example, is an important skill to have, especially since Niagara University is growing and catering to people who have disabilities like being deaf. I have not met any deaf students at my time at Niagara University however, we should accommodate to those who are deaf and get a more diverse community. I believe sign language is so important to learn. I plan on taking an ASL class because my sister’s boyfriend’s family is deaf. I learned a few signs through them, however there is more I would like to learn and am glad Niagara University offers sign language classes. A few more classes to list off are Africana/Black Studies, Fine Arts, Liberal Arts, and Woman Studies. Email your counselor or professors to see if you are interested in taking any of these classes next semester!
2.) My friend has a crush on a guy that is in her class and I like him too. He told me the other day he likes me but, she really likes this guy. How do I tell her without hurting her feelings?
I hate to break it to you but, you’re probably going to hurt her feelings if she really likes the guy. I would sit down and tell her in a nice way and make sure she’s okay with it. If you really care about her, you’d make sure her feelings matter. If she is over dramatic and never wants to talk to you, then date him. However, if she seems a bit awkward about it … bring him around for the three of you to hang out one time and see how it goes. Yes, your friends matter because they will be there for you if the guy breaks up with you. It is also your life and you have to know what is best. The one thing you don’t want to do is lie to her and say there is nothing going on between you two. That would be a bad situation. Do what you think is right, but don’t lie!
3.) My friend is complaining about a friend behind his back. I actually really like this friend. How do I tell him to stop complaining about my friend without hurting his feelings?
This is a tough one but you have to be completely honest. Honesty is the most important thing in friendship and any relationship. You have to tell him how you feel. At the end of the conversation, maybe say, you should get to know him more and the three of you can hangout all together. If he doesn’t want to get to know him more try hanging out with them separately but let the one friend know to not complain about him anymore. Friendships can be hard but just be truthful.
I’ll be back soon to answer more questions! Miss Monte out.
