If you are a prospective student there is one thing you need to know about the fall trimester–it seems like it lasts forever! With Thanksgiving break, then the Christmas break and MLK Day off, it seems like it will never end, even though it is the same amount of time as the other trimesters. Since December, we have had a very mild winter, in my opinion coming from Wisconsin. Only in the past two weeks we have had snow and colder days, which seem to make the time slow down, too.
Although it seems like this trimester will never end, there are a few great things with the fall trimester: you have more time to keep up with classes and study! For example, we had off for Martin Luther King Day Jr. Day, and that was extremely helpful with a Spinal Anatomy exam the same week. Knowing there is full day to study and not having to worry about class was great.
There is now less then a month until left until finals! In most of the classes we have now moved on to the final material, so I finally feel like there is some light at the end of this trimester tunnel. On another note, after this trimester, I have been at Palmer for a full year!
