Well, we're into week 4 at VanderCook. Week 4 is when things start getting, well, interesting around here. This morning's Instructional Design class was a perfect example of this. All of the students were incredibly slap happy, and our poor instructor just about lost his mind. Yeah, we took advantage of his ADD as well. Highly entertaining for all around!
Besides everyone becoming completely loopy, week 4 is when people start to crack under pressure. The homework load greatly increases, and doesn't let up until the end of week 6. The second concert is this week, which just adds to the fun, especially when everyone is trying frantically to get their work done at the same time.
For students who are graduating (myself included), portfolios are due this week. Comp exams (for those of us who didn't want to make a portfolio) are this week. Papers are being revised and edited at a frantic pace so that they'll be ready to turn in one last time. Posters are being made (or printed digitally) and prepared for Poster Night.
So, in general, things are getting very interesting and VERY intense around here! The only thing more entertaining (well, at least for the professors and the casual observer) is week 5. That's when the nervous twitch begins...
