A Look Back at September: The School Year is Ramping Up

(Academics, Athletics, Class of 2018) Permanent link   All Posts
Williamson Photo The first round of tests starts this week and that’s always interesting. I should be fine if I just plan out my time and actually study. It is easy to get sidetracked with other important things while at the Academy. As an MES major in my 3/c year, I have a lot of classes and labs, but staying organized makes all the work doable. It also helps that the material is interesting and fun (for example, our last marine biology lab was a trip to a salt marsh to study the ecosystem).

 

I am continuing on in my corrosion research. It is a bit slow moving right now because we are trying to simultaneously do tests and set up corrosion cells, while still waiting on supplies. Although it is fairly difficult to get everything ready to run the tests, when I go to work on the project it is relaxing because there are no requirements. With the freedom to do as much or little as possible, the lab is one of the few places that I can actually be in control and do things the way I want. It is refreshing to have that break during the week.

 

Rugby has also started up! The first game was last Sunday and the A side played really well and beat the University of Vermont, who were ranked 7th in the nation last year. I am on B side but I still got to play. The game went really well and I had a lot of fun. I am looking forward to more games and optimistic that the team will make it all the way to nationals.
