I just registered for my last (sort-of) quarter of college! It is a very strange feeling, let me tell you. I throw in the sort-of, because I am actually planning on taking a few classes over the summer, one to finish up my Spanish minor, and potentially a couple of post-bac classes if needed. Here is what my last true term of college is looking like:
Physics 203: the final installment of the year-long sequence. And oh boy, I can't wait to be done with it. Unfortunately, rumor has it that third term is the most difficult, so I have a feeling I'll have to put more time than usual into studying physics on a weekly basis. While I do find the theories of physics to be pretty interesting and understand it's importance, I strongly dislike how long the homework takes every week.
Psychology 469: Psychopathology. I am incredibly excited for this class- I have heard nothing but positive reviews from friends about both the course and the professor, Pam Birrell. This is the last requirement I need to fulfill for my psychology major, which is pretty exciting as well! The class focuses on emotion and personality disorders, the factors that affect these disorders, and how they are assessed, diagnosed, and treated.
Psychology 378: Child Development. Depending on how my research credits pan out, I may not need this class. But, it is a class that as a Peer Advisor in the Human Physiology department that we recommend all of the time to pre-health services students, so I figured it would be a good idea to take the class and get in some more overlap!
HPHY 410: Tech in Cardiac Rehab. This is the last Human Physiology class I need to take in order to graduate! It's such a strange feeling, looking at my degree audit and seeing only the smallest portion of red (what I still have left to do). The physiology program requires two elective physiology classes, and I have been waiting to take this one all year. This class is taught off campus at Riverbend Hospital, so it's like I get to take a field trip once a week!
PEOL 242 : Bouldering. I will also be taking another rock climbing p.e. class with my friend Lizzy during spring term. Instead of a class using ropes and climbing up the wall, we'll be focusing on climbing to a low height in which ropes and gear are not needed. Bouldering routes are generally pretty challenging and short, so I am very excited to get more experience and suggestions from the class.
PEMB 212 : Hatha Yoga II. I'm a pretty big fan of all of the PE classes that U of O has to offer, and while I have taken Hatha I, I'm very excited to move onto the next level in the class sequence.
Other projected activities include: Peer advising in the Human Physiology department, continuing to work as a research assistant in the Awh Lab (studying attention) and my job at the Annual Giving Program. It looks like I'm going to have a busy spring term!
