The beginning of spring semester is quite different than fall semester. For one, people are more miserable. In the fall, there is an excitement about meeting new people and exploring new places, plus the weather is amazing. After a brutal fall semester, we finally receive a four-week reprieve. When we come back to school we are greeted with cold weather and people getting over colds! It is way more difficult getting to class when the snowapocalypse is outside greeting you!
This is finally my last semester at UIC. It is hard to believe how fast the years have gone by. I have spent all my summers at UIC and every form of employment I have ever had has been through UIC. My last semester at UIC just happens to be a spring semester. I am expecting a difficult course load, but I think what will be even more difficult is saying goodbye to a place that has given me so many experiences, friends, and of course, knowledge.
Therefore, I plan to make the most of the “beginning of the end.” I plan on taking advantage of everything UIC has to offer me. Good luck on your spring semester everyone! It may be gloomy and cold outside, but remember to make the most of it.
