It's been so bittersweet, this senior year of mine. I've been trying to make the most of it, balance classes, working, finding internships, do homework, etc. and you can't forget your friends! We definitely need more than 24 hours in a day is what I've concluded.
Last semester I took 15 credit hours (a class is typically 3 credits at WWU) which equals out to five classes - a definite norm on campus. My classes last semester were interpreting III, interpreting in advanced settings I, digital production I, senior capstone (ASL), and communication law and ethics. They were a lot of work, but you can't expect anything different when you enter into your Junior/Senior year and the majority of classes you'll be taking are 300 or 400 level classes. This semester I'm taking 16 credit hours and I'm hopeful I'll end my undergraduate career on a high note. This semester I'm in interpreting in advanced settings II, interpreting IV, digital production II, radio broadcasting, senior seminar (communications), and history of the U.S. II.
Even though it's a lot of work, I'm still having a great time with all of my involvements on campus and being able to squeeze time in with my friends. My busiest days consist of classes, a meeting or two for an organization, UA (that's what we call University Ambassadors), and a S.W.A.T. hour or two (Student Website Advancement Team). We also can't forget LEAD events! You'll definitely be busy here at the Woods, but hopefully it will be a good busy of things that you like. I've noticed now, in my senior year, that it's important to be involved in the things that make you happy as well as something you may be able to use on your resume.
I hope you all had an awesome winter holiday!
