Classes, Lacrosse and Glee Club, Oh My!

Eshleman Photo I cannot believe that it is already September 21st. This month has flown by. My typical week this year has changed a lot since fourth class year. The workload is much greater but I am very interested in all of my classes. In my Intro to Mechanical Engineering Design class we are building finger engines. First we design them on SolidWorks (which I have never used before but it is a lot of fun) and next week we’re moving to the lab to actually begin constructing them. Getting to be hands-on in the classroom is exciting and challenging.


Sports wise, fall ball is about to begin for lacrosse. I am thrilled to get back on the field. I have biweekly meetings with my coach leading up until the actual season where we discuss anything and everything. Sometimes going to a small school can be frustrating because there is not much privacy, but I also really appreciate how close everyone is and how interested all of the teachers, coaches, and mentors are in their students’/players’ lives. It is nice to know people are looking out for you.


Glee Club has been insanely busy. Fall is the season for performances. I have my first solo called “O, America!” arranged by Dr. Newton. I sing the alto 2 part while there’s also a soprano and alto 1 part. We have our big NYC trip coming up in the beginning of October. Many people are looking forward to it. Getting to travel to sing is such a blessing, and I am so glad I was introduced to the club as a fourth class. Next weekend is Parents’ Weekend, so I am thrilled to show my parents around and tell them about all that has been going on here at the CGA.
