Faces of Albright,
What is going to be your most challenging course in the spring semester?
This semester I think my most challenging course will definitely be Drugs and Addiction! Psy 306 with professor Laudenslager. I've never taken a class with this specific professor before, and the weirdest thing that kinda shocked me a little was when I entered the book store, eager (as always) to buy my books. (not really, not a fan of the money =p) I asked the very polite book store clerks to help me locate my seemingly invisible book for this class. We all came to the conclusion that a book was never assigned. I have NEVER had a class in which a book was not assigned. Anyway that made me a bit nervous about how this class would be taught, I guess its going to be very unconventional, and different from your normal Psych class. I guess I'll find out soon enough! I have the class later this afternoon! I will be sure to let you know how it goes =D
Definitely my art class. I am taking Intro to Printmaking with Professor Woodward. Even though I love art...I have to say, I REALLY cannot draw. However, I am looking forward to class and learning everything Professor Woodward has to offer about printmaking. I'm really excited to see what kind of projects we will be doing and also taking "field trips" to the Freedman Gallery to see the current exibits. I think this class is really going to help me appreciate art more and be able to talk about it in a constructive way.
I am currently student teaching. This will certainly be a challenge. Enough said.
I think my most challenging course this spring will be Physics 2. The first two weeks won't be too bad, but then we're doing electricity and magnetism for the rest of the semester...yikes! But I'll probably be taking full advantage of the Physics study group I heard you're hosting, Andy :P
Wish me luck!
Spanish Senior Seminar! Everyone has to take a senior seminar in their majors, but another language just makes it even harder! There are only 7 people in the class, which means a lot more talking for each of us, but hopefully that will help me improve my speaking skills! Professor Melendez is tough, but she is a native speaker which will enhance my learning skills. But, I already have a typed assignment due tomorrow, so I better get to it!
I'm not sure yet to which class is going to be the hardest. This semester I am taking, BIO 101, Fashion Senior Seminar, and Research in Public Relations. I also have an internship with Marking for Albright College which counts as a class. Each of the four classes that I have all have challenging attributes. As far as BIO ... well science was never my strong suit. I will have to try and focus really hard, and possibly get a student tutor to keep me on track! My senior seminar is taking everything that I have learned here at Albright and combining it all into 15 weeks! It is he one class that I am extremely interested in and excited to take trips and work on projects with. Research in PR is going to be tough. The teacher for me pushes the students to the full limits. I do appreciate this for when I leave here I know I will have a great understanding of my concentration, yet while taking the class it is hard ! Ahaha! And lastly I have my internship. Im excited to really expand and get hands on training in the Communications field, while still being on campus. I couldn't ask for a better internship. So here is to my last semester as a student at Albright !!!
This semester I believe that my most challenging course is going to be Psych Assessment. It is taught by one of our great professors here at Albright, Dr. Ingram-Wallace! It is literally going to be the most difficult and stressful class I have had in my entire life. We have to develop an assesment tool, for example a test like the SAT or something to evaluate a child's memory capacity. There are a lot of components and a lot of outside work that is required...plus my professor referred to this project as pregnancy. THAT IS SCARY!!!! It is definitely going to be a challenge but I'm looking forward to it! Plus my best friend is the teaching assistant, so she can answer all of my questions!!!!
I have a pretty challenging course load this semester. I have the second semester of biochemistry, research methods, molecular genetics, and Buddhism! My hardest one will probably be Molecular Genetics, which is part of my biochemistry concentration requirements. The course has both papers and oral presentations that involve heavy amounts of research and reading. I am really interested in genetics though so that will make it slightly more bearable. It should also be a lot of studying too, like all science classes are!
Truth be told, I thought I had this coming semester in the bag. I was wrong... I'm taking Environmental Ethics, Management Information Systems, Business Strategies, and International Marketing and I'm in homework up to my eyeballs, haha. It's not the difficulty of the coursework, but the time it takes to read 45 page chapters each night. So if any of you out there have a surefire way of reading faster or skimming well LET ME KNOW! My sanity would appreciate it.
My most challenging course this semester is going to be my Environmental Ethics class before. Which if you know me you would say thats odd, but it is a philosophy class which is an area that I am not completely familiar with. So I am hoping that the way philosophers look at the Environment versus how Sociologists look at it. But luckily @VinceGiorgio is in my class and he and I will be able to work through the course work together!
