I have a WWYD question. I am taking only online courses right now but went to campus once this semester to meet with an advisor. I was super nervous and felt so awkward. I have joined the student organization for the field I'm studying (speech-language pathology) and they are having a brunch and silent auction next Wednesday morning on campus. My husband can take the morning off so I can go. Should I go? I'm super shy at times but think this might be a good networking opportunity for me. I'll be on campus taking classes next Fall and figured it might help to meet some other students in my major. I attend the 3rd largest campus in the US (over 50k students at my campus) and there are only about 200 students in my major. Sooo..WWYD?
First of all, congrats on getting work on the first draft done! And your spring classes sound great. In the winter quarter I am taking:
The second quarter of Data Analysis (and apparently the formal mathematic one) and,
Classical Theory (sociology), the first in the sequence
Two classes, 8 credits, I'm thinking plenty of work as these classes are known to be thoroughly demanding and I've heard professors suggest not taking a third seminar. Especially as I will also either be TAing or a Reader.
Spring quarter is going to be hell, but as that isn't happening until March...I'm not going to worry about it now.
Second, as to your question, I would most certainly go. I imagine that it would be super important to network and it would be so nice meet some other students so when you do start taking classes, you do feel just a tiny bit at home because you already know a face or two. Not too mention, study groups can be quite useful. And...you might make friends! Yes, I would go.
Over 50K students? Are you at Madison? I mean, you don't have to tell...or you could tell me to keep guessing....
My day was good - I did most everything on the list and then some, although the study time consisted of vomiting on the paper so it wasn't super productive. But at least I have two pages of something.... I stayed through two lab sections and then after to ask further questions. I think I understand the theory behind and theoretical model of logistic regression. I think......we'll see next quarter or maybe even in ten minutes when I try to write on it
. Hugs to everyone!
