college announcements

I've done very well this semester, but none of my grades are determined until I make it through finals, this Saturday through next Tuesday.

My first final is on Saturday, and it is in differential equations, the last dedicated math course on the standard chemical or biological engineering curriculum.Of course, being in an engineering major means this won't by any means be the last I see of math. But I have had class time dedicated specifically to math in all the time I've been in school since I started kindergarten, and it will be strange to leave that behind.

I've decided to add a minor in philosophy to my planned coursework at college. I have always been interested in the field, and I've enjoyed my Ethics class this semester immensely. I'm signed up for two more philosophy courses next semester, and I'm very much looking forward to them.

Good luck on your Diff EQ (as we called it at my school) exam tomorrow. Like you, I suspect it won't be your last math course. It's pretty much the minimum required for any engineering or scientific work. But you may enjoy going through a term or two without having to worry about math problem sets!

I'm very glad to hear about your philosophy minor. All your posts on here suggest that it would be a serious interest for you. In fact, I was surprised when I found out you were majoring in engineering, although I knew engineers with quite varied interests -- despite the stereotypes -- when I was in college.

I'm just really happy that your university work is going as well for you as it is, and that you seem as happy as you do. Let me have a peek at your grades when you get them! :-)
