Weekly Highs and Lows of a Typical Carleton Term.

October 29, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Week 1: I love all of my classes. I want to get involved in as many student activities as possible. Ebony’s Man Dance here I come!!!
Week 2:  This week is not as easy as the first, but still pretty good. Let’s go play Frisbee on the bald spot!
Week 3: Work is starting to pick-up. First major tests or papers are usually this week.
Week 4: Usually goes by pretty fast, with midterms fast approaching.
Week 5: Midterm week, God help me!
Week 6: Monday is midterm break. So 6th week, is a well-deserved short week after a stressful week of midterms.
Week 7: Not too bad, workload is very similar to 2nd and 3rd week. Tons of leisure time to grab food in town and play a few pick-up games.
Week 8:  The calm before the storm.
Week 9:  Time to prepare for the stretch run. The week usually involves a lot of studying and writing in preparation finals.
Week 10: Hell is here (last day of class and finals week), enough said.

One of the great things about Carleton is the resources that are present to assist students with the highs and low of a Carleton term. For example, the Write Place is always willing to review paper drafts, the Academic Support Center hosts an in-house time management specialist, and student workers at Math Skills center can help with math homework and studying. In addition, many of the intro level classes have language assistants, writing assistants or teaching assistants to aid students. The only way not to succeed at Carleton is to not seek help when you need it.
