As this semester quickly draws to a close, I know that as soon as I get home, I will love being there, and will wonder what Penn has in store for me upon my return. So, to remind me about what is coming, I am going to list my top 4 things I am excited about for next semester.
#4 Spring Fling
Last year, a combination of being sick and rain caused me to miss out on some of the best parts of fling (namely, the quad). This semester, I will get a fuller fling experience, and everyone loves the time of the year when the entire campus could care less about school work.
Many people will disagree with me here, and argue that classes are the main deterrent to returning to campus. However, for me, classes provide order to my life and add obligatory social interaction to my day. No matter how boring the class, if you are sitting with a friend, you can find a way to make it interesting. This leads directly into…
It is great to be able to hang out with my friends, but I also have good interactions with my advisor and my professors. I have created a great network of people here, and I look forward to deepening the bonds that already exist and creating many new ones.
The primary thing I get at Penn and nowhere else is the student section, especially at basketball games. Last semester was pretty good, but there are some great promotions and new activities coming from the student section in the new year. I can’t wait for Big 5 games, and of course the HUGE matchups against Princeton and Harvard.
What are you guys looking forward to in the next semester? I’d love to know!
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a great break and a happy holiday season.
