On Wednesday, I started my final year at Holy Cross/my final year before I hit the real world.*
Anyway, one of the questions that most of my friends and professors have asked me since I’ve been back is the following: Is it weird to be back at Holy Cross? To an extent, it is. My daily schedule has changed dramatically (no more 20+ hours of dance a week!), and I have to get used to eating at Kimball instead of cooking for myself. But I thought that I would have the most difficulty readjusting myself to the American way of higher education. Honestly, this hasn’t been that big of an issue. My classes this semester are, for the most part, self-driven and mimic the tutorial system a lot. I’m taking two seminars and a lecture; the lecture operates more like a seminar than anything. I’m also writing my Senior thesis, which is exactly like the tutorial system anyway. You know what has been the most difficult part, though? Hearing a bunch of different American accents and not hearing any British accents. Everyone speaks just like me!
*I realize that some people think that graduate school really isn’t the real world…so, I guess that we’ll just go with that this is my last year at Holy Cross. Sound good? 🙂<< Older Entries
