The Fall Semester Frenzy

(Academics, Class of 2019, Engineering) Permanent link   All Posts

Well, it’s almost the end of the semester! There has been a lot of fun activities and events keeping up the spirit of the corps before the infamous “Dark Ages” set upon the Academy. We’ve had morale events ranging from costume contests to company dinners. And, we’ve also had our first snowfall! Sadly it did not result in a snow day. At this point in the year, the 4/c have found a “rhythm” to the school year and they have definitely improved their spirit missions (pranks) on the upper-class. It’s great watching 2022 grow and helping them get ready for the big indoctrination exam next semester: Boards. Compared to last year, academics are more difficult, but I enjoy the challenge they bring. At this point of the year, most of the 3/c have settled into a major yet there are still those few who are deciding if it’s the right major for them. Although at one point, I was torn between ORCA and Civil Engineering, I’m now confident that I will stay on the track of Civil Engineering. It’s crazy to think there’s only a few more classes left in the school year before finals!
