Junior Year!!– First Year as an RA


So excited, I actually got my first 100% on my engineering exam! Thank you foundations. So on to what’s happening this week, we made concrete in our Civil Engineering class and now we test the strength as shown below:

Concrete made from last week, we placed molten sulfur to create a leveled cap for the compression test


In order to know the strength of the concrete, we place it under compression.

****So below are my pictures from Junior Year at UIC*** 
My junior year at UIC, I accepted the offer to become an RA at Marie Robinson Hall apartments. It was a bittersweet feeling. I missed my friends at JST but I knew that being an RA was its own separate journey. And on that journey, I made so many new friends and discovered more about myself than I could have ever realized.


My first day on duty as an RA. Hanging out with my fellow staff at MRH.


Taking residents to festival in the park with my fellow RA Ajay


Faculty in Residence in Campus Housing. The famous Bill Kohler makes his "Headlines and Hashbrowns" program for residents in the apartments.


Remember the year of "swine flu?" We are training for that. Staff were trained in assessing and handling possible swine flu contaminations.

Stay tuned again next week as I show my Senior Year Pictures =)

Topic Next Week: Senior Year– The year I joined ROTC

Answer From Last Week: My biggest memory in college was actually my duty nights at MRH. I loved my staff and residents.

Question of the Week: Spring break is coming up!!!– What are your plans??
