Hi, Benjamin here. I suppose I'm officially finished with my first semester at Emory-- my last exam is finished and my dorm room has been cleaned up. I'll have more reflections later, but for now, I look back at a semester full of new experiences and learning, both in and out of the classroom. It's been a good few months.
For now, though, I'll just list one thing I've learned from each class:
Latin-- Language reflects elements of culture. Or is it the other way around?
Biology-- When it comes to some parts of life, scientists have no idea what's going on.
Chemistry-- Structure determines function.
Great Cities of the Middle East-- Geography is the framework from which a city adapts.
