Whenever I mention to people that I am studying engineering, they always seem to comment on the fact that I am a female studying engineering, a traditionally male-dominated field. Surprisingly, this is something I rarely notice in my day-to-day life.
Midterms are slowly beginning to slow down so I can finally tell you about my Spring Break. I decided to break it up into two parts, half of which I would go car-camping, and the other traveling to Portland, Oregon. In retrospect this made my break very busy and let me really make the most out of the free week!
This week was crazy both inside and outside of class! It was a hectic week of midterms and projects, and I was also trying to plan for a smooth transition into spring break! On top of that, there was another animal study in my research lab on Tuesday – more on that later in the blog!
Freshman year, I would definitely describe my housing situation as the complete dorm experience. My dorm room had both girls and guys, it had communal bathrooms, and every room was a two-person room. Though many people feel a bit nervous or apprehensive about dorm-style living, I can honestly say that I would not have wanted my housing experience to be any other way!
Everyone decided to take some time this week to describe their majors in their own words. I struggled with this topic for a while, since Chemical Engineering is such a broad field, and there’s so much that you can do with a Chemical Engineering degree.
Howdy! As y’all know from my last blog, this semester I’m taking a class called Mobile Games Programming that focuses around building and programming games for Apple’s iPhone. Already I’ve learned a ton from the class, and I want to use the class as an example to tell y’all about the techniques that I use to get the most out of my classes.
First just want to mention how incredibly excited I am that we beat Stanford this weekend!! It was hands down the most exciting game ever, and the spirit and energy were absolutely amazing. Coming off that victory, I have a busy and exciting week ahead!
Most Tuesday and Wednesday nights you’ll find me at King Hall (KOH), located just across from the residential dorm Webb Tower and above the dining hall Cafe 84. So whether after dinner or looking for a place to study away from the distractions in my apartment, I’d say KOH is my favorite study spot on campus.
With midterm season finally coming to an end, I figured I ought to tell y’all what some of my favorite places to study around campus are!
I spend most of my time studying in my apartment. I like how quite it is and how I have everything I need only a few feet away, but when I’m not studying in my apartment, my two favorite to study are my sorority’s dining room and the engineering quad.
