Student Blog The blog of William Woods University Undergraduate Students


Spring Frenzy!

These last few weeks of the semester are so busy and they are flying by so fast! I can't believe we only have a week and half of classes before finals. It is crunch time for classes and everyone is getting ready to finish up those semester long projects and papers.

Last week I was inducted into the Beta Beta Beta Biological Honor Society. It recognizes students for academic achievement in the biological sciences. We had a great time at the initiation, and I am looking forward to getting involved next fall.

The Equestrian Department has been quite productive in the last week as well. I had several sorority sisters compete at a recognized Hunter Jumper horse show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They all came back exhausted but happy with their horses' performances and with some great memories with the show team members.

The Equestrian Department also hosted a USEF/USDF recognized Dressage show this past weekend. I volunteered to work in the show office on Sunday afternoon. There were a lot of great riders and horses at the show. I got to see some amazing tests! This is the first recognized Dressage show I've been to and it definitely won't be the last! Watching such athletic horses perform precise movements is really amazing, and seeing it on television just is not the same!

My Mentor-Mentee project is finishing up for the semester. After a bit of trial and error with finding a website host, we successfully created two horse health scenarios. Next week I will be presenting the project in a LEAD presentation with my mentor, Professor Jean Kraus. It has been great fun and I've learned a lot! I will be passing the project on to another student (who happens to be one of my sorority sisters) to build even more scenarios in the upcoming school year. Next year I will be participating in the same type of program as a Cox scholar with Dr. Nicholas Pullen and his mammalian cell culture research. I am really excited for the opportunity!

We have Alumni Weekend at The Woods this weekend. We will get to meet so many previous WWU students. I am really excited to reconnect with people who graduated last spring, and also to meet some of the alumna of our Alpha Phi chapter!
