It’s this time of the year again when Scotties rush to the library early in the morning and stay there until late at night, preparing for the final exams, finishing last projects and assignments and trying not to get too distracted by their summer plans. It’s particularly difficult with all the amazing destinies that they are heading to. For instance, a group of students from the Spanish Department will be spending five weeks in Spain, studying the language and exploring the culture. A sophomore student, Tanvi Mehta, will be working as a student intern with the Epidemiology, Data Management and Analysis team at the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A junior, Emaline Laney, will be working at Harvard Medical School’s Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology conducting research on new drugs to help fight antibiotic resistance. In other words, there are some really smart and ambitious women at Agnes Scott!
I also wanted to share with you some pictures from the Spring Annual Research Conference (SpARC) that was held on campus last week. Students had a chance to present projects and research that they have been working on over the past year. To see all of the topics that were discussed, browse the 2015 SpARC Program. Maybe some of them will inspire you to think about your own academic questions that you’d like to investigate at Agnes Scott.
Finally, check out the video from last night’s Pancake Jam. It’s one of my favorite traditions at Agnes Scott. Every semester, when the final exams are approaching, the Center for Student Engagement organizes a huge breakfast party served … at night! Dancing, singing, free massage and a large breakfast – it’s a great way to relax before the exams.
Thank you for visiting my blog this year. If you are arriving at Agnes Scott in August, you should be excited for the events of Orientation and the Leadership Immersion. In case you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you next semester! Karolina Klimczak ’16 The International Fellow
