Finals week is over!
So excited — I’ve actually been studying in the Civil & Materials Engineering Lab for the past 48 hours. A couple of my friends actually slept in the lab, too; it’s crazy. Anyway, we also helped out the younger civil engineering students, seeing that we were in their shoes a few years ago and covering the same subjects as before. This song has also been playing in my head, from NBC’s Community titled “Donde esta la biblioteca?
So this past week as well, my family and I had to make the tough decision on putting to rest our family dog, Poochie. We had him for 9 years (72 dog years). He was one of the best dogs I’ve ever known — we all loved him so much. So this week’s Pic of the Week goes to him:
Other things that happened this week: Campus Housing began winter closing of all the residence halls on campus. The student staff went around to ensure the building is secure over winter break as a majority of the students went home for the holidays. If at anytime any of the student wishes to stay for a period of time during winter break, they may request approval here at:

Our past program last Friday was an attempted trip to go ice skating at Chicago’s Millennium Park. Sadly, no residents turned up and it became a staff program. We just decided to get dinner at the Ogilvie Transportation Center. The food court there had Popeyes, McDonalds, Taco Bell, Cinnabon and more! It’s a fast food paradise. Here’s our picture:
That’s a wrap for this week. Next week I’ll talk about my internship with an engineering company over winter break!
Stay Classy Chicago,
TOPIC NEXT WEEK: Internship
