This semester for me has been merciless.
I’ve been bombarded with quizzes and tests before I can even get adjusted to having to be in class every day again.. not to mention switching my body from the restful state that it was enjoying in break to the sleep-deprived and achey state I commonly find myself in during the semester.
I am thankful, though, for all the work. I know I’m learning when I feel challenged in my classes, and go home and review my notes every night. I know I’m invested when I read the textbook before each lecture. And I know my professors are invested in me in the style they teach.
I recently was invited to sit in on candidate presentations for the new Dean of Science. The presentations truly opened my eyes to how fortunate I am that the faculty I have formed close relationships with are truly interested and care about me, as a student and a person. I’m also so thankful for all the opportunities Scholastica has given me, because I realize now that our sense of community here is not what one will find on many other college campuses.
As the Centennial of our school begins to be celebrated, I find myself truly grateful for all that this institution does for the students who choose to go here, and what I’m sure it’s been doing for the past hundred years.
