To sum up my first PLU J-Term in one word: MEGAMADNESSOUTOFTHISWORLD. And yes, I am aware of the fact that it was six words, but all together and it justifies it all.
Taking my first ever philosophy class was hard, especially to cover one semester over just four weeks. But then again, as a GUR (General University Requirement), there was really no way of avoiding it.
My pre-internship class in the School of Arts and Communication, however, has been nothing but fun, and I learned a lot from it. As a pre-requisite for the internship class I'll be taking as a senior this fall, the class really prepared me for what I later will be taking on in my academics. Even though they are both required for my major, which is Communication, I consider them nothing less but fun classes!
All in all, although I had to say goodbye to my weekends during J-Term as I did nothing but study, write papers and do research, I wouldn't have done it any other way. Oh, and another thing: It is important to know that you can take classes up to 5 credits for FREE and stay on campus for FREE during J-Term. If PLU is giving me the option to do that, I'm certainly going to take them up on that offer!
Because hey, who doesn't like free classes? :)
