Spring 2009 Post:
"It is already spring; at least on the calendar and this means mid terms. This semester has been more challenging in the sense that more time has to devoted to study time. The courses that I am taking are really interesting and I enjoy them very much. This makes the studying go a little better. The semester is really going well, I am doing well in my classes and I am enjoying them a lot. The arrival of spring or even a change of weather would really help though. Now I know that people were not kidding when they said “here in the Palouse we experience the four seasons in a week,” I miss the sun."
"Finals week is here and it is amazing how fast the semester went. Like any other student would tell you, it is really busy and stressful right now, but I am glad the summer vacation is just a week away. Over all the two semesters at the University of Idaho have been awesome."
Fall 2008 Post:
"When I first visited the University of Idaho in fall of 2007, I felt that this was a great place to come to school. Later in the year I did a campus visit to further my knowledge of the campus and its agricultural programs. After that visit I decided that I was going to attend the University of Idaho. I am now half way through the fall semester and my initial positive feeling that I had towards the college has grown. The past couple of months have been a real learning journey; I have been surrounded with multiple learning experiences that just have made my life as a college student at the UI a great one."
"As the end of the semester approaches times seems to be diminishing and curiously assignments seem to increase. After returning from Thanksgiving break classes seem to be getting busier as professors wrap up their course and projects that were assigned for the end of the semester. Besides all this, I am content with the positive experience that the University of Idaho provided me on my first semester. Overall I have had many positive learning experiences, which I am glad I had them here. It has made me appreciate the opportunities that the University of Idaho has given me as a Hispanic student."
