Yes, I actually have classes, too…

Posted By lindsey on November 21st, 2011

Now that I think about it, all of my recent blogs have been about the exciting stuff I do on the weekends, or events I attend during the week. But I’m in college, and I do in fact have classes to attend so that’s why this blog is going to be about my academic experience here at Roger Williams. I know that this blog may not be as exciting to read as the others, but what I’m going to be talking about is the reason why I am even here so it’s important.

I only have four classes this semester which is one less than most. However, I arrived here at Roger Williams with a few AP credits from high school so luckily I’m not behind, but in fact slightly ahead. Monday, Wednesday and Friday I have two courses, Human Behavior in Perspective and Introduction to Cultural Anthropology. These two classes are over by 9:50 in the morning, so I’ve learned to go back to sleep at 10:00am and wake up whenever I want. Yes, this means I have 8am classes which apparently isn’t “ideal” for most people, but in my opinion I would rather be able to go back to sleep before a lot of students have even started their classes for the day.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are my “late” days. By late I mean I’m not done until 12:20 in the afternoon. Tough life isn’t it? I start off with Basic Statistics then have an hour and a half off until The American Legal System.

Without question Introduction to Cultural Anthropology is my favorite course this semester. I suppose that is a good thing considering it’s one of my majors! I could spend hours learning about every aspect of Anthropology and how cultures around the world differ from each other. It’s also a plus that I have an awesome professor that I learn so much from. Also, I’m pretty sure that it is a good sign when I find myself studying a subject and enjoying myself, even when I don’t have an exam or quiz coming up. Or maybe it just means I am nerdy?

Human Behavior in Perspective is a CORE class that I have no choice but to take so at first I wasn’t looking forward to it. However, my professor has yet to teach something that hasn’t sparked my interest, so I have no problem with waking up to attend it! We’ve learned about Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology and so much more. Basically any “ology” you can think of…. okay maybe not quite. This class combined everything I love into one. Needless to say, my MWF schedule couldn’t get much better!

To be completely honest, I don’t have much to say about my Basic Statistics class other than that I don’t quite understand what is to “basic” about it. This is something I will probably NEVER understand.

The law has always been a passion of mine, and I’m 95% sure I want to be a lawyer eventually. Because of this I have so much interest my American Legal System class. It fascinates me just how much there is to know about our legal system and I believe that having a greater understanding of the law will be a strong foundation for whatever I decide to do later on. Also, I love being able to apply every class to daily life!

So all of that being said, I feel like I have made the right choice of majors. Even though I am only a first semester freshman, I don’t see myself ever wanting to change either of them to something else. I am passionate about both which is something that I am quite happy to be able to say!

I’m going to try to write another blog tomorrow about more fun events in the past week, but if I don’t… HAPPY THANKSGIVING and I’ll write another one when I am back on campus next week.
