Classes Next Semester!

Wow! It is hard to believe that I am almost done with my first semester of junior year here at Coe. I just registered for my classes next semester, and it is starting to feel like I'm not a little kid anymore!
Next semester, I am taking
1.)Modern Political Theory
2.) Enivronmental Rhetoric
3.) Organismal and Ecological Biology
4.) Acting 1
5.) Statistics

All of these classes are really exciting, but there is one that is not part of any of my Majors. I am taking acting with about 6 of my friends. We are using this class for a gen ed, but for me it will be my first experience with anything like that. I am lucky that the class we signed up for only has 12 people in it, so other than my 6 friends, there will only be 5 other people and 1 teacher who can see how terrible of an actor I am first hand!

I was also lucky enough to sign up for a May Term Class for the second year in a row. Last year I went to Montana for an environmental studies seminar class. This year I am going on a writer's colony May Term where we go to 20 baseball stadiums, enjoy games, and learn about America's pastime. I have never heard of anything like this class, but I am so happy to be able to take advantage of such an amazing opportunity through Coe.

End of the Cross Country Season

Coe College Cross Country

This past weekend we had our regional meet up at St. Olaf in Minnesota, and two weeks before that we had conference at Central.
Finshing the Conference Race

That marks the end of both our Men's and Women's Season. We now get two weeks off before we start training for track.
This was our most successful season on both sides since I have been at Coe, and I am very proud to say that I was a part of it. This was also the closest team I have been a part of.

 Everyone hung out all the time, not just at practice. I think that us being so close made for some great experiences, and allowed us to push each other to reach that next level of competitiveness. If you are a prospective student and are considering running at Coe. I would definitely advise you to at least meet with the team and the coaches. We have an outstanding staff, who really cares about us as people. I cant wait to start track, and continue to grow the program, or family, that is Coe Cross Country.
Goofin Off

Guys team at the Start Line
Until the Next Adventure, Ryan Rey
