Happy Saturday, readers! It has been an eventful and exciting few weeks for the class of 2017 here at SCO. Between the excitement of receiving our white coats at the White Coat Ceremony & Convocation two weekends ago and the relief of making it through our first round of exams and lab practicals, we have learned a lot in the past few weeks about what it is like to actually be an optometry student.
The studying picked right back up again after our families headed back home, and we finished up our first long “chunk” of exams earlier this week. While it would be nice if there were just a few more hours in the day, we are all doing our best to keep our heads above the water and I know that we will all get some much needed rest and relaxation over Thanksgiving break! As you can see from the photo below, my Louie is a wonderful study buddy. He gives us something to laugh about during the long nights of studying!
I am planning on posting again in a week or so about students working part-time jobs or work study positions during optometry school – please feel free to comment if there’s anything else you’d like me to discuss about being a first year here at SCO! Thanks again for reading.
