Hi there everyone in Michigan! I was born and raised in Detroit, but now I live in sunny Southern California! I don’t envy your weather in the winter months, but it was 100 degrees out today and I was wishing for some of that good old Wayne County snow to cool me off!


Anyway, I know how difficult it can be to find a job while in college, and no one has extra time to spare.  I thought I would offer up as a resource the website I work for: GoJobs.com.  Right here:




You will find a page targeted specifically to Michigan job seekers.  Please check it out, and I hope you are able to find a job that will let you finish school also.  I welcome any feedback you may have, please feel free to contact me or leave comments here.


Thanks for reading, and good luck!

Michigan Transfer Scholarship Guide

I am the author of a book called the Michigan Transfer Scholarship Guide: Public Colleges 2007. The book discusses transfer opportunities available to Michigan college students.  Subjects covered in the book include:


Available Transfer Scholarships

Exceptions to MACRAO

Housing requirements, options, and costs at Michigan’s public universities

Available Majors

Graduation Requirements at Michigan’s public universities

Tuition and fee prices


I wrote the book because, after meeting with an academic advisor at my community college every semester, I transferred with the confidence I would not lose any credits.  And, that’s all.  Residence Life policies at my new school left much to be desired.  Credits advisors had said would complete MACRAO did not, and I could have qualified for better transfer scholarships elsewhere.  Other transfer students I had met were encountering similar problems.


It is understandable that on occasion students may be inaccurately advised.  Academic advisors have the daunting job of consulting hundreds of students about, hundreds of programs, at dozens of universities in the state.  The Michigan Transfer Scholarship Guide is a single source where prospective transfer students can compare all their options.  It will be updated yearly and a version covering this state’s private colleges is being written.


The book can be ordered through Amazon.com, Bn.com, and through any other bookstore.  If you order it through a bookstore the ISBN is: 0-9788542-0-9.


If you don’t want to buy one, review copies have been sent to community college academic advising offices throughout the state.  If you do not have access to a community college academic advising office, please tell your library to order a copy.

Hi! I just joined this community because I have some questions for like.. the 2 people who are in this community!

I'm a nursing student at Oakland University. However, I'm looking into transferring because the program is SOOO HUUUUGE here that I'll have to wait at least a year to actually get in the program. I'm already in my second year here, and I just want to get done!
So I applied to MCC and the nursing program. Is anyone here a nursing student there? If so, how do you like it? I've heard it's a good program, but I'd like to know from someone who's actually in it. Also, has anyone taken the HESI? It seems pretty harmless, but I'd like to know!

If anyone has answers/advice, it'd be very much appreciated!
