Hello IMC Friends!
Is it just me, or have these last few weeks gone by at warp speed? I think it must be the hectic holiday season and not having enough hours in the day to get everything done!
It’s beginning to get a little quieter here in Morgantown, as WVU students are completing their finals this week and leaving campus for the winter break. Unfortunately, the nature of our online program means that we still have one more week to go. I will be the first to admit that I was pretty bummed after realizing that our classes would be in session over Christmas. But when you sit back and put it into perspective, it’s not so bad. Our classes are 9 weeks long, which means we are able to cover twice the amount of coursework as students enrolled in a program that follows a traditional semester. And, we have the convenience of being online.
Fortunately, I don’t have an assignment due for Week 8, so I’m planning on using the extra time I have this weekend to get a head start on my final project. And hopefully that will afford me some extra time on Christmas to spend with family and friends. What about you guys? Do you have a special strategy in place for managing your coursework and the upcoming holiday? Any IMC grads out there who want to give us some tips?
