Today's post will be guest-written by my best friend, Ali.
A few weeks ago, I answered some of your questions and wrote about what it was like to attend a big university like Texas A&M. Ali went ahead and answered some of the same questions about her small private Christian university for those of you who are considering private school. It was great of her to do this and I hope these questions help you out! This will come in two parts, so be sure to keep an eye out for part two on Friday.
1. What classes are you taking?
Ali: I am taking: College Algebra, Survey of Old Testament, Introduction to Arts, World Literature I, Foundations for Excellence (a course required by my university)
2. What is your schedule like?
8:00 a.m. : Get up, get ready, do quiet time, clean room some
9:15 a.m. : Go eat breakfast
10:00 a.m. : Go to chapel
11:00 a.m. : Go to lunch
12:15-3:30 p.m. : Do homework or clean
3:30-4:45 p.m. : Work out
4:45-6:00 p.m. : Do more homework
6:00 p.m. : Go to dinner
After dinner, the rest of the night I will either to homework or hang out with Jordan [my friend] for a while and then go do homework!! On Mondays at 7:00 at night, I do go to a Bible Study, and on Wednesdays, I do have a class at 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
3. What are your classes like?
They are hard but exciting too. I am really enjoying learning. I think I am enjoying it because I have good professors though that are wonderful Christian examples.
4. Are you liking your classes so far?
I am loving my classes.
5. How does your schoolwork differ from when you were in high school?
It is very different from high school. Because you do not go to the same classes every day, you get more time to do homework. However, homework is more intense.
6. Are your classes harder than you thought they would be?
Some are harder. Some are actually easier. One class that took me by surprise was my Old Testament class. That is actually my favorite class, but unfortunately it is my lowest grade. It is a hard one.
7. What kind of food are you eating?
Well, DBU has all kinds of food, but not very healthy, as any other college cafeteria. My food routine is actually quite boring: salads and sandwiches.
8. Where do you prepare food?
I do not prepare my own food. I actually don't even have a microwave.
9. Are you enjoying the food?
Not really, but hey, I am blessed to HAVE food.
10. What was moving in like? Like was it really crowded and stuff?
At first it was chaos, but then it got a lot better. I actually feel really organized in a room that is as big as a master bathroom with two other girls.
Thanks for answering these questions, Ali!
