Join me on a Friday in my life at Hopkins. I have a pretty heavy MWF schedule, but in return I have light Tuesdays and no class on Thursdays.
9:00 am Wake up and get ready for class (It actually ends up being closer to 9:15 depending on how many times I press the snooze button)
10:00 am The first class of the day is General Physics. The lecture part of this course takes place MWF and on Tuesdays, we are split into groups of 15 students for a small group session with a TA.
11:00 am Grab a quick lunch in between classes at Levering Kitchens, one of the dining halls on campus. Levering Kitchens has endless options including sushi, soups/salads, sandwiches, burgers, and a wok station. Today, I got a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich (with bacon, yum!).
12:00 pm Biochemistry. Usually, this is a lecture-style course, but every few weeks we gather in groups of five for a problem-solving session.
1:15pm Today was the global climate strike and, to mark the occasion, the Hopkins Ecological Design Initiative launched with a climate art party. Students were able to add their own designs to the dome.
1:30 pm Fundamentals of Epidemiology discussion section. This week, our exercise was on investigating a food-borne outbreak on a military base.
3:00 pm Public Health Biostatistics section. In this section, we all contribute answers and responses to a google doc with questions pertaining to the information covered in the previous classes.
3:30 pm After class, I like to stop by One World Cafe and treat myself to a slice of cake. If you’re ever in the Hopkins area, I would recommend stopping by One World. They have a variety of vegetarian, vegan & gluten-free meal options in addition to their bakery display case.
