I’m A Sophomore?

Seeing the freshmen makes me feel old, which is pathetic because I’m only a sophomore. Being a sophomore isn’t that much different from being a freshmen except now I’m starting to like my classes a lot more! My classes are becoming to be more specific to my major and it makes everything a lot more interesting. To stick with tradition this will be the blog that I post explaining every class I’m taking. I did two of these for my freshmen year and plan to do the same this year!

SW 266 – Media Literacy
This class is a requirement for my communications major. I really like it so far because it’s interesting to learn about society through media, and see how it affects us everyday. Plus it has to do with my major so I automatically like it.

PCA 241 – Music In Action
This class is for my CORE curriculum at Butler. I’ve done a lot of blogs about the CORE, so if you are not sure what that is you can check out one of those blogs. This class is entertaining just because my professor is funny. It also is reminding me of my days back in middle school playing violin. This class goes into detail about music particularly classical music and where it all started from. It’s really interesting, but I’m glad I only have to be in it for one semester.

COM 101 – Public Speaking
There’s an extremely long title to this class, but it should be just called Public Speaking. This is also a requirement for my major. My professor is new to Butler, which is cool because she’s taught at larger schools and I think she brings a new perspective to our class and campus. She’s also extremely entertaining so I feel like for a class that could have been boring she has turned into a class that I love going to everyday.

STR 222 – Principles of Strategic Communications
This is for my major as well! It’s exciting because I am finally in the beginning classes towards my major. So far this class is extremely interesting. We have been talking about advertising and how it affects our lives, but eventually we will also look into Public Relations. It’s more of a general class of strat comm, but it’s pretty exciting to go from exploratory to now finally being in major classes.

SP 101 – Beginning Spanish
Yes I am in beginning Spanish. In high school I took French and Japanese and now I need a language for my major so I figured I should do Spanish. I’ve never taken Spanish in my life unless you count the three week rotation in middle school where we tried to see if we liked it or not, in which case I chose French. I really do miss French, but I don’t see how it will help me in the long run so that is why I chose Spanish. I hate the time of this class (Tuesdays/Thursdays 6-740 PM), but I’m excited to be taking a language class again. I love languages!

So that’s my schedule for this semester. It’s the last semester of my CORE classes except for my GHS. It’s weird to think that I am already done with CORE! Hopefully this means more classes for my major next semester!

As many of you know Butler freshmen always take class photo during their Welcome Week. Here’s the Class of 2016 pictures based off their theme this year!

    Education builds character of our future generations.
    I support the Idea that kids should be taught 2-3 languages.

  4. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one today
