I survived my last first day of classes at Bryn Mawr College! Work is already piling up, but I am looking forward to many academic and personal pursuits I have lined up for Spring 2017. This quick blog post is an abridged run-down of my winter break, my first day of classes, and some things I plan on keeping busy with this semester.
With a little luck submitting job applications and generous funding from LILAC/CPD, I had the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. for job interviews at the Selective Liberal Arts Consortium (SLAC) Job Recruitment Day on Friday, January 6th. These were my first in-person formal job interviews, and I enjoyed the excitement of making good first impressions, envisioning my post-grad life, and exploring a small section of my nation’s capital.
When I experienced my first college winter break, I thought it was too long. Compared to high school where we only had 2 weeks, college break is about a month long. This calls for some serious planning or else my winter break will pass by in a blur.
