As you can see from the photo, fall has arrived in Bloomington, Indiana! The IUB campus truly offers some breathtaking views during this time of the year. In this post, I will highlight where I am academically at this point in the semester–Week 11–so that you can get a sense of the workload that you may experience should you attend IU.
I am currently taking three doctoral education courses and the end is in sight for all three. In the past, this has not typically occurred for another week or two, but I am ahead of the game. In my online course, I have already completed my final paper which is not due for another month. I appreciate how, especially in online courses, I can usually tackle end-of-course assignments fairly early. For my in-person courses, I have a final paper that I still need to begin and just a few minor assignments. I am in a great position for the remainder of the semester and will not have to do too much work during Thanksgiving break which is nice! I am also taking advantage of IU’s excellent art scene this semester. This Friday, I am attending the Hansel and Gretel opera. Next weekend, I am attending the Potpourri of the Arts produced by the African American Arts Institute. Overall, this has been a pretty enjoyable and doable fall semester. Enjoy the lighter semesters when they come along because this is not always the case!
