Pre-Thanksgiving Jitters

(Academics, The Cadet Experience, Class of 2016) Permanent link
Schroeder Photo Hello again! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just a week away; I am so excited to go home to Montana. I haven’t been home since August and I’m so excited to see my friends, family, and the mountains! November has flown by, even faster than October, and it’s unbelievable how the semester is already almost over.

 

This month went well though, I have been keeping up my grades in school and I keep getting to go on awesome field trips with my major. This month we went to a news station in Hartford for Meteorology where we got to talk to a weather broadcaster and we also got to go visit the Mystic Aquarium with my Marine Biology class. Overall the workload is lessening as the semester draws to a finish, and final project/exam-prepping is starting to commence.

 

I just finished my rugby season this past Saturday. We made it all the way to the national rugby tournament and we finished somewhere between 9th and 14th nationally; we’re still waiting to hear the official word. Either way it’s really exciting to be ranked that high nationally! I’ve never been on a team that is done that well before.

 

I don’t know about everybody else, but I am really craving snow. It’s been nice that the weather has been so mild this fall, but I’m also so excited to go skiing, sledding and to just play in the snow. I know my hometown has some, which is another reason I can’t wait for Thanksgiving, but I really hope I’ll have snow to come back to after Thanksgiving leave.
