In the spirit of short and sweet blogs, I’ve decided to put together a list of some of the highlights of the spring semester, and the parts I’m most looking forward to.

1. Spring Fair!

First and foremost, I think I speak for a majority of the school when I say Spring Fair is the most hype weekend of the spring semester. It’s food, friends, and sunny weather for two days straight that everyone gets to spendĀ *not* in the library.

2. Homecoming

Homecoming weekend is always fun. It’s a great chance to get out, watch some lacrosse, and enjoy the vibe around campus for a few days. Definitely a way relieve some stressĀ and enjoy yourself.

3. SOHOP

With the spring semester comes the latest batch of new blue jays, which of course means SOHOP is right around the corner. Again, SOHOP serves as a time to take in the fresh air, look around at the fresh-faced incoming class and reminisce to a time that feels not so long ago.

4. My classes, believe it or not.

For the first time, I’m taking classes relevant to my major in a real sense. ModSim and SysCon are the first two real BME classes that serve a practical engineering purpose, and I’m excited to be able to learn what they have to offer. Aside from that, I’m taking my first programming class ever and doing awesome biomaterials research at the medical institute. Provided I can keep myself together, this semester should be one to remember.
