You’d think by now I would have this whole “back to school” thing all figured out. Apparently not. When I got the syllabus for my Financial Analysis course on Monday I was overwhelmed by the amount of work that was due for Wednesday: chapters upon chapters of textbook reading, multi-part problem sets, and catching up with all financial current events. Accepting my fate, I hunkered down and tried to get through as much of it as I could. It wasn’t until I took a second look at the syllabus today during class that I realized that half of the work I did is actually due for Friday. Lesson learned: READ THE SYLLABUS. Union professors assign a ton of work, but they’re not that cruel!
About The Author
My name is Catherine Elizabeth Ziac (Cat, for short) and I am a senior at Union College in Schenectady, NY. When I'm not studying for my major in economics or my minor in Russian, you can find me skimming through catalogs, playing the flute, fishing, online window shopping, chatting with my sisters (my twin, Julia, studying physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA, or my little sister Maddy, currently a senior in high school), or out and about in good old Schenectady with my wonderful Union friends! I love pink nails, long showers, office supplies, and going to the public library. I spend too much time looking at blogs and skimming the WSJ online, but I still believe in the merits of a hand-written letter. I am always in the mood for yogurt and granola and am never without a piece of gum. I usually answer "blue" when asked my favorite color, but I know in my heart that it's always been and always will be garnet!
