Ja-Niece Best

Name: Ja-Niece Best

Year: Senior

Hometown: Prince George’s County

Major/Minor: Graphic Design.

Her Campus Towson: What exactly happened in regards to the email that you sent your professor?

Ja-Niece Best: I kept seeing people say how Beyoncé’s birthday should be a holiday, so I decided to write an email excusing myself from class because of this "holiday." After typing it, I accidentally hit send instead of saving it to my drafts.  I thought it was pretty amusing, so I decided to post it on Twitter, unaware of the attention it would get.  The next morning, I was shocked at the retweets, articles, and news stories about my email. 

HCTU: How do you feel about this sudden media attention?

JB: It's amusing but shocking at the same time. I never thought a tweet or email could get so much attention from the media. 

HCTU: We've noticed that some people have been quite harsh with their tweets. Do you feel like you are being bullied?

JB: Although there have been many negative comments, I tend to overlook the negativity and focus on the positive because in my eyes, positivity always outweighs negativity. I also use the negativity as motivation, and because of that I don't feel like I'm being bullied, even if that was the goal for some people.

Transition to Towson

9/5/2014

Are you feeling scared, a little lost, and a lot overwhelmed? You’re not alone. It’s no big deal to not adapt to being at college as quickly as everyone else – you’re an adult and you have the right to take this transition at your own pace.

You’re probably away from home for the first time. And if you’re anything like me, the first thing you missed was the natural comfort you felt within the walls of your own home. Most of us have never had to deal with roommates. At home, you didn’t have to worry about paying for things like food or the Internet. You didn’t have to find classrooms in large, confusing buildings, after trekking across campus from your last class with only ten minutes to get there. Some of us haven’t had to make a completely new group of friends since kindergarten. The entire first month or so of freshmen year is so stressful.

It gets better. I promise.

You will find that as you get used to being at Towson, you will embrace it. Your fears will become your favorite parts about Towson, and the things that overwhelm you will become faint memories that you won’t even think of at the end of the year. Here are five things that helped me get adjusted quickly:

1.  Get involved. The Fall Involvement Fair just passed, but you can still check out involved.towson.edu if you were unable to attend to browse around and figure out what organizations are the ones for you (Her Campus Towson is a great option to consider!)

2. Come out of your shell. I know that this is easier said then done, but speaking to random people in your classes, dorm, and anywhere on campus will help you to realize that we’re all in this together and that all of us have been where you are now if we aren’t experiencing it with you.
