20 GIFs That Explain The Feels Of A New Semester ​

I thought the last semester was supposed to be the easiest?

20 GIFs That Explain The Feels Of A New Semester ​
Molly Cole

I have officially gone through all of my syllabi for the spring semester, and in case no one has said it yet, I am stressed. I am taking 18 hours, five classes, one six-hour intensive Spanish class, and an extensive reading list. While being so incredibly overwhelmed by this semester's workload, I am simultaneously just as excited about it.

I have a new mindset going forward to not expect anything specific but to just put my best into each class. I have very interesting classes on my schedule- Juvenile Delinquency, Urban Sociology, Introduction to Law, Psychological Research Methods, and as I mentioned previously.. a six-hour intensive Spanish class. In all of my undergraduate experience, I have never had a midterm test nor a paper to write (except in writing comp and in my last research methods class at UAB), but here we are with a midterm test in ALL of my classes and at least one long paper in ALL of my classes. Nonetheless, this semester has such a bright light at the end- GRADUATION!

I just felt that it would be appropriate to spotlight some of the emotions students might be feeling regardless of what point they are at in their academic career. After all, we are getting one step closer to the ultimate goal!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
