Hey fellow Regents! A new academic year is beyond us! It seems like summer went by so fast that it was just yesterday that we were here studying away! Time is deceiving, though, and it actually is the 2010-11 school year. The shock has especially hit me as I am now over halfway through my Rockford College experience and have officially started my junior year here!
I hope that you're enjoying it so far. If you're a new Regent, perhaps you've had some difficulty finding your way around campus here and there, but I'm sure that has just about become a thing of the past now! There are always many helpful individuals on this campus that are happy to help with anything if you have trouble! I find that this college is truthfully full of some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
How are your classes so far? Mine are pretty good, but they will definitely be keeping me on my toes as I am taking a full course load of 18 credit hours! Chances are you probably do not have a class in the new 5100 State Street classroom building, but even if you don't, you should definitely check it out! I lucked out to have a class in there and everything in that building is SUPER nice! The carpeting, the heavy wooden doors, the comfortable chairs, all make the atmosphere there just feel really neat!
We definitely have some cool events in store for this semester! Looking down the road, Student Activities has a weekend trip planned to the Mall of America this December! That should be a great way to relieve stress then since it will be around finals time. It will honestly be one of the coolest events I've seen yet here at RC! There also is going to be an interest Forum Event by Amber Madison talking about relationships next week! Keep in mind that you need to attend two of those per semester to satisfy graduation requirements. Why not get one in early?!
I wish you good luck and start as the semester has begun!
Until next time...
