Finals Week

It's finals week!  Well, at least it's finals week for people in the College of Architecture and Planning.  Because it takes professors a long time to grade all of our projects, they end up being due this week instead of actual finals week (which is next week).  It's a little tough to finish up projects, but it ends up being great because we tend to not have any finals during finals week.

I lucked out this year.  I have no final tests, just final papers.  It's a little unfortunate that I have to write so much, but I like the way my classes are challenging me to think critically about what we've been doing all semester.  Along that vein of thought, I had a presentation in my Research Methods class today, and I think it went well.  At least, a professor who tends to be hard to please said she likes my project, and the chair of my department has been supportive.  That's something I like about my college: all the professors are involved in your education the entire five years you're here.  I like that nearly all the professors in my department know me by name, and those that don't at least recognize me.  It's nice to have that kind of community.  Even though I'm excited about graduating, it'll be sad to leave the people who have been so supportive over the years.


  1. Good Luck! Though I know you will do great because you seem to be a really good writer! This is actually the first time I have come across your blog, but from what I have read I have found it to be both interesting and well written. Keep up the good work,

    I know how hard it is to leave friends who have been with you for years and helped on all those time when you need it desperately. But this doesn't mean that after graduating, you will not talk to them anymore. Just take their cell phone numbers, facebook or any other social networking ids or even an email address and remain in touch with them. This is the only way after getting out of the university to remain in touch with your old friends. I am doing the same thing.

    Best of luck for your final preparation.
