Between classes, club meetings, studying and socializing, these past couple of weeks have really flown by! As first years, we've started learning retinoscopy techniques in lab and have already taken our very first lecture exam. There's no better way to kick off our optometric education than by jumping in feet first! I'm really enjoying my classes so far and have learned A LOT of things that will be critical in clinical practice. The professors are very helpful and make it clear that they are there to help us succeed. It's very nice to know that they see us as future colleagues and treat us as such. SCO emphasizes that we, as students, are the primary stakeholders and my experiences so far definitely hold that statement to be true. There are little things that happen each day that affirm optometry as my choice of profession and remind me that SCO is where I am meant to be.
