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
*Engineering Project Management: The class built model siege engines, but more importantly, we learned about managing schedules, budgets, and resources to simulate larger projects
*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!
*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
*Summer Opportunities Session
*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
*Meetings with the BME Department Chair
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
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!
