I realize I have been somewhat spotty about my blogging in the past two weeks, but there are great reasons for that! I have been working on some things that I am pretty jazzed about. I had an article published on our local newspaper’s website, I have teamed up with with an exciting new business and I have been actually making some decent strides in what has turned out to be the most challenging semester of my grad school experience so far. I also have a few guest bloggers lined up that will be writing in to give another perspective about life as a returning adult student.
I plan to bring you up to speed this week.
Thanks for hanging in!
After the second day I have had the benefit of attending all three of my classes. They are all awesome. I love them, I love my professors and I am really getting jazzed about this entire program.
What I love about going back to school is that I feel vibrantly alive. I feel young…ger. I love that feeling.
The only thing about this program though is that it seems to me though that everyone really knows each other. I am the new one to this crowd. I don’t know the secret handshake yet. On the up side, I am not the oldest one. I figure that two people are older than me. I am not going to focus on the fact that they are the professors. Only two of them.
I am pretty sure that the third professor is about 4 years my junior.
Ok, so I made a small error on the FAFSA. The college caught it and called me. It was a quick fix.
Lucky for me the school does not employ this as a screening process. You know – if you aren’t smart enough to fill out this form maybe you shouldn’t be in college – type of screening.
I think they just put a note in your file that says you are a “special needs” student.
If the shoe fits…
I could use the extra attention.
I received this letter from the College of St. Rose dated October 26, 2009: “I am pleased to inform you that our Faculty Review Committee has approved your application to the Master of Arts Program in Communications at The College of St. Rose beginning in the Spring 2010 semester”
And the crowd goes wild.
Enclosed was the graduate catalog I am to refer to so that I may understand the requirements of the program. This is where it says I must maintain a B average. If I earn less than a B in any course I must repeat it.
