It’s good to be a part of CEE

This weekend I am lucky enough to take a vacation to Florida to see my dad. Therefore, this should be interesting as I am writing this at 30,000 feet right now on a little five inch screen.

Going on this vacation made this past week a little difficult, however. I will be away through Tuesday and that means missing both days of classes. I had to speak with professors about possibly missing any surprise quizzes in advance and ask for any additional reading or work that will keep me caught up. In addition I had to finish up any homework due next week 5 days early so I could have it handed in on time for me while I’m away.

This brings me to the point of this blog. The CEE department at Lehigh University is a: challenging, yet fair; small, but capable, and a demanding but understanding department at Lehigh. As I was doing the work ahead of time I realized how far I had come as far as acquiring knowledge since joining the CEE department. However, even with such a large work load I am not nearly stressed as I was this time last year because the professors are engaging and helpful and the material is interesting and more than occasionally fun.

I also have found that being a part of a smaller department I share the same schedule with most other CEE sophomores. This helps immensely because I can find help with homework and studying whenever I need. In this instance though the most useful part is having someone to hand in my work and to reiterate important parts of each lecture when I am away.

Overall the Civil and Environmental department is a great group to be a part of. The people are down to earth. The work is exciting and rewarding, and everyone is out with a common goal: the success of the department, it’s professors and its students.
