We’ve entered into that mid-semester respite known as Spring Break. It came none too soon this year! After a couple of months of digging into our courses and working around a week of snow and ice, now we experience the equivalent to “hump day” and start the downward slide toward summer. For some, it means the end is coming too soon to get their course performances up to snuff. For others, it means the end of the semester is a mirage on the horizon – a moving target that never seems to get closer.
So what does all that mean when it comes to our semester grounded in reality? It means we are past mid-term grades. It means we start the thoughts of pre-registration for next fall. It means things like academic awards banquets and end-of-school accolades take center stage. It means we work hard to recruit our incoming students and prepare ourselves to bid farewell to graduating seniors. Such things are never on our radar screens in August or September, but cannot be overlooked when the calendar reads “March”.
For all who are already part of our BIMS program, rest up this week and be ready for “finishing well” – the mark of outstanding students. For those looking to join our program, “finish well” where you are. We look forward to walking through your college careers with you to prepare you for meaningful careers in biomedical science – research, employment, patient care, forensics.
