I can’t believe we’re already at the end of the semester. These past few months have flown by without a dull moment. This last week of the semester is crazy for me – 3 projects due, last SWE event, my sorority philanthropy, Christmas invite, sisterhood event, not to mention I just got back from a weekend of sailing, and have to start studying for my four finals. Here’s a quick recap of my semester. But first, a picture from my sailing trip this weekend (look out for that blog later!). You’ll recognize fellow VSAs Vlad and Steve!

I’ve learned so much more in my Civil Engineering classes about design and construction, after taking a steel design course, theory of structures, and putting it all together in my building science class. Check out my blog on my building science projects this past semester here. This week our final project is due, it’s so awesome – stay tuned for that blog later!

I’ve had such a great time getting to know the new girls in my sorority, and participating in our social and philanthropy events this semester. Our next philanthropy is this Friday, called French Toast Feast (a brunch where we only eat french toast!). I love going to my sorority house during the holidays, since its totally decorated, complete with a Christmas tree and lights! We have our Christmas formal this Friday night, called Crescent Ball, but you can read about our last invite here.

SWE has also been doing really well this semester, and have had very successful corporate, social, and community service events. I also had a great time going to the SWE conference in Houston. You can learn more about that in Cassandra’s blog. Yesterday we had our Try-It Riot event, where we have local girl scouts come to campus as we help them earn science exploration badges. I can’t wait to see the other great events we have planned for next semester.

Once I finish finals, I can’t wait to go back home to San Diego to sleep and catch up with friends. Most of my friends are either coming back from or just preparing to go study abroad in the spring, so I can’t wait to hear their stories from studying abroad.

I won’t be blogging over break, so until next time, Happy Holidays!
