Hours

(Overcoming Challenges, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
 Spencer Zwenger The first half of my first semester is coming to an end, and it has been extremely difficult to say the least. You are told numerous times that you will be putting in hours upon hours in homework and stressing before every test, but you don’t believe it until you’re really experiencing it. I’m taking around twenty credit hours much more than some of my best friends at home. In addition I am not able to start homework until around 1800 (6:00 p.m.) because I have diving practice from 1600-1800 everyday. As daunting as this place may seem, there is help available everywhere. Every teacher is willing to stay after class, or make an appointment later to spend some one-on-one time until you grab the concepts. In addition, the numerous peer tutors and cadet academic assistant program (CAAP) are also there to help. This place will challenge everyone academically, no matter what your background is, so don’t let academics scare you away. The hours that you put into this place are all worth it in the end. As one of my professors says, “Work hard, play hard.”
