This week marks the beginning of my senior year, which is completely unbelievable. As I passed all of the freshman moving in all I could think about was me three years ago. I came to Boston so excited to meet everyone and start the amazing journey that is college, and the fact that I am almost done at Wentworth is both sad and exciting. This just means that I am determined to make the most of my senior year!
Because I am a senior, my fall semester is my final Co-op experience. I am working for a geotechnical and environmental engineering company in Charlestown and love it so far! Though this is my first week, I have been through a lot of training and have even done some lab work! We did a sieve test on soil samples for one of the projects my company was working on, so I had the opportunity to take what I learned in class and work on it in a real life setting. Everyone that I speak to about the coop opportunity that Wentworth provides raves about how great it is! I picked a geotechnical company because I believe I would like to pursue a masters degree in this field, and this is the best way to find out if I like it or not before I commit to a year long process and the expenses of graduate school.
Other than work, I am excited for the new school year to start. We have great things planned for the Society of Women Engineers and American Society of Civil Engineers this year! Our executive board meetings start next week, and the general meetings the week after, so it will be nice to see the returners and new faces!!
