Thinking ahead to next semester
Throughout the semester, a select group of ASU freshmen will be blogging about their first year as Sun Devils. In the same way that graduation serves as a milestone marker for both students and the university, the freshman year experience is one of significant formation as it sets the foundation for academic excellence.
It's hard to believe that I'm more than halfway through my first semester of college already! I survived midterms and the end of the semester is now in sight. This past week was homecoming and there was so much stuff happening on campus. Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to do everything but I did participate in some of the events. I went to the homecoming game against Washington State and I had a blast. It was my first football game here at ASU. I'm for sure going to get season passes next year so I can go to all the home games.
I've also been playing a lot of Frisbee lately. I play on the women's Ultimate Frisbee team and it's so much fun. We have our first tournament this weekend in Albuquerque and I can't wait to get out and play. In a couple weeks we get to play in San Diego. Playing a sport is a great way to take a break from academic life and have a good time working out and hanging out with friends.
Another exciting thing I did recently was register for my classes next semester. Choosing which classes I want to take was pretty difficult since I had to lay out my entire time schedule myself. It takes a while to make a schedule since I had to not only find the classes I need to take, but then narrow it down by which professor I want as well as plan out the timing so that nothing overlaps. I'm planning on double majoring as well so I had to make sure I was getting into my schedule the required classes for both of my majors.
It was a great feeling to finalize my course load for next semester. Now that I know what I'm going to be taking, I can't wait to start!
