It’s official, I just completed my third day as a PA student at Campbell! My classmates are super nice & the professors are very friendly and approachable. I’m so excited that I am finally here, something that I have wanted for so long is now a reality. I still can’t believe I am out of Charlotte and living in this small town of ~3,000 people. This will definitely take some getting used to, but hey… less distractions!
Obviously the past two weeks have been hectic and I’ve been a little absent, but here are some highlights from the past weekend/ start of the week…
Last week was Ryan’s birthday so we celebrated with a lunch date at Cafe Monte and then went out with friends to Alive After Five for some celebrations (this was also my last hurrah!). Definitely missing this guy already!
On Saturday, we made the 150 mile drive to Buies Creek and I finally got to move into my townhouse and meet my lovely roommates! One of our classmates organized a picnic so we could meet each other before the first day of class and the rest of the weekend was filled with unpacking/organizing/resting. You don’t realize how much stuff you have until you actually have to pack it up, unpack, and figure out where to put it again. Our place is definitely coming along, looking more homey every day… more pics to follow 🙂
My new roomies, Jeff & Sarah
Ryan already claimed his place on my wall 🙂
We were all so excited for our first day! We had to wear interview attire, hence the suit. The first two days were mostly introductions, paperwork, getting our laptops, software, etc. They did feed us lunch which is nice! We had our first lectures today, Anatomy and History & Physical Exam. So far it looks like we have class every day from 9am-4pm (approximately)… 2 hour classes and 4 hour labs, phew! I’ll let you know how that works out in a few weeks.
Our wonderful new building, The Leon Levine Health Sciences Center, which houses the PA program and the osteopathic medical school.
The first few weeks will definitely be an adjusting period, and I’ll try to post as often as I can. Only a few more days til the weekend… Go Camels!!
