Heading into Winter Break

The end of a semester is always bittersweet. Finally, all my huge projects will be done and turned in and I can study for the final and then I’m DONE! At the same time, college is going by way too fast and I can’t believe I’m entering my last semester of undergrad!

Even though it flew by, I still got a lot out of this semester!

Here are the classes I took:

*Biomedical Engineering Senior Design: My group made a system for MS patients to test their symptoms at home between doctors visits in order to give their physicians a larger sample of data to work

I also got to take and analyze an electrocardiogram of myself!

*Engineering Project Management: The class built model siege engines, but more importantly, we learned about managing schedules, budgets, and resources to simulate larger projects

I always love a chance to do some woodworking!

*Molecular Biology: My final science class with lab! We learned all about genetics and it was really cool, but I am DEFINITELY looking forward to a semester without 3 hour lab and reports once a week!

*Sailing: This year I have some extra room in my schedule, even while taking three Masters classes towards my Progressive Degree Program, so I took Sailing! I just had my trip this weekend with Natalie and Vlad!

Couldn’t think of a better capstone to a semester!

*Physical Electronics: We learned how silicon semi-conductors actually work.
Of course, if you’re doing college right, then classes are hardly all you’re doing! The Associated Students of Biomedical Engineering (I’m co-president) hosted or co-hosted 30+ events this fall including

*Korean BBQ

*Summer Opportunities Session

*Broomball

*Thanksgiving Dinner

Photo and link from last year’s event. We do this annually! It’s great to have a Thanksgiving even if, like me, you don’t go home until winter break

*ASBMEntoring Events

*BMEStart Team Meetings and Presentations

*Zero Waste Tailgate Volunteering

*Our tailgate with the BME Grad Students

*Corporate Meet and Mingles with Various Companies

*Networking Night with over 20 corporate reps

*Attended the BMES conference

and DOMINATED the conference hashtag 😀

*Academic Presentations

*Beach Bonfire

*Meetings with the BME Department Chair

Read about how awesome Norberto is in my linked blog post!

and MORE!

 

Of course, I also had a lot of fun! If you want to read about some of it, I went and saw Book of Mormon and went on my third Weekender

Such a fun show!

Fight On!

 

Oh! And I can’t forget to mention that I landed an internship with Abbott! So excited for that this summer 😀

Anyway, all that stands between me and my ski trip with friends followed by a few weeks at home in Wisconsin are two projects, 6 exams, and several funding deadlines! Better get crackin!
