Well, the dreaded finals week is upon us. Tomorrow is the last day of classes and then finals get underway. I have a final on Thursday, a final on Friday, and two finals on Monday. Personally, I donít think my schedule is that bad. Unfortunately, my two hardest finals are the two that are on Monday. Iím still in shock that 8 days from right now, Iíll be home for a little over 3 months. I feel like summer vacation has officially snuck up on me. But I think the bigger surprise is that my undergraduate career is just about half over.
I received an e-mail from ResLife saying all of the auto-allocations have been completed. I did retain my current room at the ICC, but this e-mail was sent to all UML students. This means that all housing assignments have been completed. So if you did sign up for housing, you can check out the housing gateway on the ResLifeís website. The credentials to log in are your ISIS name and password.
Well, I guess it is time to say goodbye for now. I should probably get back to studying aka try to find another way to procrastinateÖ
Iím sorry I didnít write last week. I lost track between all of my exams. I had 3 exams and 2 quizzes in one week so it was pretty hectic. I did say I would talk about housing in this blog so here it goes.
The biggest difference for housing next year is that Bourgeois Hall, previously an all freshman residence hall, will now be for upper classmen. As far as I know, Fox Hall will now be all freshmen. So this means incoming freshman will be placed in either Leitch Hall or Fox Hall. Both are located on East Campus. As far as I know, this is the only difference. If you have any questions, look at the housing portion of the UML website. There are also videos showing each of the residence halls, which is great so you can see what the residence halls are like.
My friends and I are all going to retain our rooms at the ICC. We all just love the ICC so much. You canít argue with heat and air conditioning that you can control, plus large beds, an onsite dining hall, and living in downtown Lowell. Personally, I think it is the best residence hall on campus.
Thatís all for now! Since I shouldnít be too busy this week, I am going to try and write again soon.
Iím sorry I didnít write the last couple weeks. I had seven exams in three weeks before spring break and during spring break I honestly just forgot to write. But Iím back!
Now that midterms are all over, it is time to relax a little bit. Spring break was good as usual including a lot of sleep and seeing some friends and best of all, minimal homework. Also, march madness has started. If you donít know, I love college basketball. I watch a lot of it throughout the year and this is one of my favorite months of the year because of it. And April comes after March, which clearly means spring is upon us so that could be why I like March as well.
I just canít believe the semester is already half over. In under 2 months Iíll be a junior. I feel like I just attended freshman orientation a couple months ago, but soon I will be halfway through my undergraduate career. How did that happen?
In my next blog Iíll talk about housing since housing selection for next year is coming up. Maybe this time I will actually talk to you soon instead of not blogging for two weeks.
Happy Easter Weekend!
I canít believe it is finally Easter. This semester is going by wicked fast. In 6 or 7 weeks, my freshman year is done! I feel like I just moved in last August. This year has been a blast, but I canít wait for summer. Who doesnít love the beach and warm weather? I will miss my friends, but Iím sure weíll meet up throughout the summer.
Housing selection is upon us here at UML. My friends and I are applying for a Your Space Group. A Your Space Group is a learning community for upper classmen. It is for a group of friends who share a common interest. You need 6 to 12 students to have one. If we do get accepted as a group, then we get guaranteed housing at the ICC (Inn and Conference Center) and we will all room next to each other. It is just about as good as having a suite. Iíll keep you all updated on how this process goes!
For all you current seniors reading my blogs I hope you arenít getting too stressed out with all of the college decision letters you are receiving. If you have any questions about UMass Lowell donít be afraid to ask in the comments section!
I hope you all have a great Easter and I hope you all enjoy this awesome weather after that monsoon we had last week. Talk to you soon!
