Last week I registered for my last semester here at the U and it's weird that it's already here! My time has just flown by since I started college!
I am in FSOS 4296 right now with Dr. Goodman. This class is required for all students who have done a field internship in the major. We only meet every other week but what we do it class is pretty cool. We make our own 'Senior Portfolio' with a bunch of things in it from our college career and whatever else we want to put in there. Mine has a few different categories: my resume, leadership, community involvement, education, internship, about Family Social Science and a writing sample. What I am trying to get at is by doing this project in Goodman's class it has made me even more excited and ready to graduate when May comes! With this portfolio, I can hopefully display myself in an unique way to employers to make them more interested in me and hire me! Other students made their portfolio's unique as well to show to graduate schools for admission. The entire project just feels like a big realization of what is ahead of me and all of us graduating soon...graduation and no more college! A lot of things will be changing and I am excited to start some new adventures soon! :)
Today is the U of MN's Homecoming! This one is unique because it is the last homecoming game that will be held at the Metrodome. Next Fall and on out the new stadium will be open on campus! Today many people gathered to watch the parade down University Avenue and tailgate at the Metrodome before the game at 11am. It's great to see everyone get together and celebrate the University with all the alumni, friends and family! All week the University has held activities to get people pumped up. Activities include flag football, blood drive, live concerts, free food, maroon and gold Friday and more! It was all a lot of fun. Also this week, Boynton Health Services hosted free flu shots for students, staff, and faculty to beat the Guinness World Record of the most flu shots in one day! We beat it too! Overall, homecoming has been very exciting and I am happy I been involved!
