Semester Wrap Up

So with classes ending for the semester tomorrow, I thought this would be a good time to give you all an update on what's going on here on the Heights.

There has been SO much going on on campus over the past week for so. Thursday night was the annual Breaking the Barriers Ball which is basically UGBC's semi-formal cocktail-esque party (minus cocktails for those of us under 21). From Thursday-Saturday from 11:30pm-1:00am there was free ice skating in Conte Forum (where the hockey team plays). All weekend the Chorale and Orchestra were performing their annual Christmas Concert. On Friday night, a bunch of my friends and I headed down the B-Line to see our hockey team play BU. Saturday our football team played in the ACC Championship but unfortunately we lost :(. Saturday night we played BU at home and lost again. Not a good weekend for Boston sports. It was a great weekend before the craziness of final starts.

Classes end tomorrow, so finals start on Thursday after two days of study days. We have two finals periods each day (usually) at 9:00am and 12:30pm. This semester, I have two in class exams and three take home exams/essays. This is the first semester I've had so many take home exams. It should be a nice change of pace from all the in class exams.

Once exams are over, it's time to pack up for the semester and get ready for Paris! It's so crazy how much I have to do before I leave. This week I'm picking my classes. Last week I went into Boston to order a visa. And I should be booking my flight in the next few days. I'll definitely keep you all updated on my adventures abroad.

Happy Holidays!
