Changes, Faculty Dinner, Tennis

22 Jun

Today I normally had no courses but I decided to search for a course that would replace the Graphics course. Why? I prefer at the moment having a pure programming course instead of a course with math too and the course “Programming Abstractions” should be real fun! It’s basically done in C++ and we cover various algorithms and programming styles. It has (as most courses) weekly programming assignments in which we have to complete an application/program. So, I called the instructor and joined his lecture the afternoon. The lecture was okay but the programming assignments are somehow challenging! There is a slight conflict though. One of the courses that I have chosen is every T-Th @ 15:15 – 17:05 and the other course is everyday at 16:15-17:05 … So, I asked if there is another section/hour that I can attend and the instructor informed me that I can watch all missed lectures online…! I only had to check with the finals schedule (which was great, different day)..!

After the lecture, I dropped by a store which I had ordered my new tennis racket, to pick it up! Next, as members of the Honors program we were invited to a great faculty dinner in which Mr. Rush Rehm, a professor of classics and drama here at Stanford, acted a small part of his latest work and then asked us for our interpretation of the play. Dinner was served and we had a chance to talk to him personally and ask him about his courses, his background and his travel.

Last, a Finnish friend of mine and I went and tried out my new racket at the East Tennis courts..! Amazing courts.. and amazing racket! Didn’t have time for any pictures, but more to come soon!
