Spring Semester 09

Posted on February 10th, 2009 by

After a nearly two month absence from Gustavus, I am thrilled to be back on campus for Spring semester.  New courses, professors, and classmates make each new term a unique challenge.

The first day of class this semester was yesterday, February 9th.  For me, my first class (Philosophy of Religion) started at 10:30 a.m.  The course is being taught in Lund 208, a classroom I had never been in before.  Lund is the athletic facility on campus, and my professor joked that after class we would be required to run laps together.  A strange thought for a group of philosophy students.

Next, I went to my Developmental Biology class.  I was a bit concerned that I wasn’t going to be extremely interested in the material.  However,images after only the first few minutes of class, I was sure that I was in for a treat.  I am particularly excited about the lab for Developmental Biology.  Our first lab will involve sea urchin fertilization.  I can’t wait, and I will be sure to include a post about the lab later this week.

My final class for the day was conditioning.  It will be a good opportunity to get some extra running in each week before Ultimate Frisbee practice.

So far, the semester is off to a lovely start.  I am eager to take full advantage of my last semester at Gustavus.
