I learned a lot this semester, and not just from my classes. I initially started off the semester taking 16 credit hours, but I withdrew from one of my classes because I was not doing as well and learning as much as I thought I should. But I was still in 5 classes, and attended the class I withdrew from every day.
My favorite class this semester was materials science. I learned a lot about material properties and I really love the material covered in that class; I'm actually considering going to grad school for this! I also really enjoyed thermodynamics.
On top of my classes, I also worked part time at the Jacksonville Public Library and have worked as the vice president for our university's section of ASME. This semester, ASME has elected a new president, hosted an awesome talk by the Air Force's former chief scientist, Robert Sierakowski, and hosted a tour at the local Budweiser plant.
Next semester should be just as productive as this semester. I am taking several classes, and have also been asked to lead a research team by one of my professor's. I'm very excited!
Now some pictures that sum up the semester:
