So we meet again, finals week…

by Pratha on May 7th, 2012

It’s crazy to think that it’s already the end of the semester. I am 4 days away from finishing my sophomore year of college, almost half way done with my undergraduate college career. It feels like just yesterday I was a senior in high school making my final decision about which college to attend. 4 long months later, I went to my first college class. Now here I am, at the end of my sophomore year, and it feels like it went by WAY too fast. There are so many things I have accomplished over the past two years, but I still have so much more to do in my next two years.

Freshman year recap:
My freshman year, I guess it’s fair to say that I focused on getting a good starting GPA and making a whole new set of friends. I remember completing homework assignments as soon as I could, and spending the rest of my time either at the gym, cooking, or hanging out with the friends in my hallway. As a WISE student, during my freshman year we had these mentoring groups of 4-6 people with an upper-class WISE student of the same major. Basically we would meet up twice a week for a couple hours each time and just do our homework, study, or help each other with classes, roommates, anything. It was really helpful, and probably one of the most beneficial parts of the WISE program.

Sophomore year recap:
This year, I feel like I completely switched gears. I went from having a lot of free time, to having basically no free time. Joining the Crew Team was definitely a major time commitment, but it’s really an experience like no other. I have written a couple blogs about crew, so I’m not going to bore you with redundant information. Crew, along with classes becoming more difficult and time consuming, and being off the meal plan and cooking my own food, every minute of my day is filled-and that is perfectly fine with me. I love being busy all the time. In fact, I drafted this blog while I was in a hotel room after part of a two-day regatta! On the friend-side of my college life, basically all of my current close friends are either in classes with me, or are on the team, but that was expected to happen.

I think that as long as you’re happy with what’s going on, it should all work out. :]

Congratulations on making your final college decisions, and I hope you guys really enjoy your college years… they go by so fast!

Until next time,
