Teaser Tuesday: Water in the Glass

Keep your brain in tip top shape with our brain teaser each Tuesday!

Try and figure this one out without resorting to Google for help!

When you think you’ve got it, check out the answer by following the link at the bottom.

A man in a restaurant asked a waiter for a juice glass, a dinner plate, water, a match, and a lemon wedge. The man poured enough water onto the plate to cover it.
“If you can get the water on the plate into this glass without touching or moving this plate, I will give you $100,” the man said. “You can use the match and lemon to do this.”
A few minutes later, the waiter walked away with $100 in his pocket. How did the waiter get the water into the glass?

Have a great 1st day of classes!

Today is the 1st day of classes! Make sure you start the year off right!

Here are some tips to making this semester a success:

  • Go to class everyday

Many professors at Parkside take attendance, and missing even one class could affect your grade. Even if attendance isn’t mandatory, skippin class means skipping out on vital information.

  • Hang on to your syllabus!

On the 1st day of class, most professors hand out their syllabus. This document explains the course and the professor’s expectations for the year. Hang on to this document! It typically has the professor’s contact information and office hours, the schedule for the class, and their grading rubric.

  • Keep track of dates.

Maintaing a calendar or planner will help keep you organized. Once you recieve a class syllabus, take a look at the class schedule and make note of when exams or assignments are due. Compiling this information from all of your classes and putting it into one location (even the calendar on your cell phone!) will help you keep due dates and exam dates in mind.

  • Take care of yourself.

Make yourself and your health a priority this semester. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night, maintain a healthy diet and be sure to make time for fun & relaxation!

  • Join Ranger Wellness


Ok…I’m just plugging myself here – but I do think joining in on all the Ranger Wellness fun is a great way to get involved on campus, learn more and stay motivated about health and wellness! I mean our whole tag line is : “Eat Healthier, Exercise More, Stay in Shape…Live a Healthier Life!” – aren’t those awesome things!?!

Best wishes for a great semester!!
