Exams + Lee-Laf = Busy Week

Ah, Lehigh-Lafayette Week, by far the most lively week on campus throughout the entire school year.  Social events, fundraisers, and competitions clutter every single hour of each afternoon bringing together the whole school against our biggest rival, Lafayette.  Lee-Laf week, as it is referred to, is always the last full week before Thanksgiving break, and usually the week after the second round of 4o’clock exams.  However an unexpected week off from Hurricane Sandy pushed a few exams into this week.

So I had one engineering exam and a project due this week, making it my busiest since this same exact week last year.  My Monday started off with classes from 9am to 4pm followed by running club, dinner, and an internship presentation by Turner Construction Company.  I tried to get all of my homework done for the week on Tuesday so I could study all Wednesday night, but my group stayed up late putting together our architecture team project that was due the next morning.  Wednesday was cramming, getting all my homework and studying done, and when Thursday finally came along, I somehow made it through the day alive.  Not only did I have an exam in the morning for Statics, but I also had a calc quiz.  After classes ended for me, I finally got the opportunity to celebrate Lee-Laf week by running in the 2.5 mile Turkey Trot, apparently one of the longest annual traditions at Lehigh.  With running club and the rowing team participating, the race got really competitive up front, but otherwise most students dress up and enjoy the run around campus.  Now, with a relatively relaxing Friday, I can look forward to the football game tomorrow where I’ll be traveling to Lafayette to watch Lehigh win!
