The other day I received the best news I’ve gotten in a while: my independent major proposal was approved!!
Bryn Mawr has a ton of majors and minors, but for the students who feel that what they want to study isn’t represented by these, the option of creating an independent major is available.
Over the summer I decided I wanted to pursue an independent major and have spent all of fall semester working on my proposal. I wrote a four page paper describing my major, the reason I want to pursue it and how I will get it done. I was able to find two professors whose interests aligned with mine and who agreed to be my major advisors. I organized and reorganized and reorganized until I was happy with my proposal. After submitting, I received some feedback from the independent major committee to improve my proposal. Then finally, after making some slight changes I received the news that the committee had approved my major in Public Health!
Now, I am able to submit an independent major work plan and declare my major. Next up will be applying to a study abroad program. Sophomore year is definitely a busy one with all of these planning processes, but it is all so exciting.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! WTF week! (Also known as Hell Week)
This is my most cherished Bryn Mawr tradition, where first-years and upperclassmen bond over performing weird tasks and confusing non-mawrters.
The women’s snap story was very confused about hell week/WTF week.
Since I’m a sophomore, this was my first year with babies!!! I was blessed with two beautiful rose buds
I realized this year that planning WTF week schedules is hectic and expensive, but it was all worth it to see my two daughters have fun and feel welcomed at Bryn Mawr. I remember my first-year WTF week made me feel like Bryn Mawr was the right place to be. I was able to meet so many new students and bond over our WTF week antics. I wanted to make sure my babies felt just as welcomed. This week is a week to relax and have fun and let go.
I’m sad that WTF week has come to an end once again, but I can’t wait for next year when I get to be a grandma!!
Today in stats class we had a fluffy visitor!!!
This is Ziggy!!
This week has been pretty hectic and rough, so having this cute puppy learn stats with me made everything better! He was super calm and didn’t bark once. Petition to start bringing puppies and kittens to class at least once a week?
