I guarantee that at some point in your college career, you’ll take en exam, feel terribly about it afterward, and when you get your exam back be upset with your grade. Well, this just happened to me when I took my structural analysis exam. After I took the exam, I knew I hadn’t done as well as I should have. I just got it back on Wednesday, and my grade was definitely not what I wanted it to be. Now, I didn’t “fail,” I just didn’t get an A (which basically is failing to me). I was really disappointed in myself, and I felt like I let both myself and my professor down. Yesterday, I redid all of the problems, and today, I met with my professor to see if I did the problems right this time. As it turns out, I did, and I made really silly mistakes on the exam…very frustrating. Well, at least I know that I can actually do the problems. My professor assured me that everything was okay, and I can still get the grade that I want. We talked for a bit, and he really took some of the weight off of my shoulders. While I’m still not happy about it, I can move on with confidence that, indeed, I will be okay. Thank you, Dr. Pakzad, for making me feel better and giving me my confidence back. You rock!

Professors really do care about their students
Hi! I'm Katie. I am a junior here at Lehigh and I am double majoring in Civil Engineering and Architecture. This Arts-Engineering program is a five year program where I will graduate with two degrees. I am from Quakertown, Pennsylvania, and I am one of the few commuting students at Lehigh. Despite of this, I am the Vice President of the Steel Bridge Team, and I played club rugby. Additionally, I do kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at a local martial arts gym. If you have any questions about anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask! View all posts by lukatie15
