Back in March, I had a photo of a Hillsdale College Center for Constructive Alternatives lecture picked up by Huffington Post College in an article entitled, “The 13 Most Conservative Colleges.”
- Day 351 – Almost Finished!
Four down, one to go!
I took my linear algebra exam this morning, and I am very, very grateful to God that it went well. I was very worried about it. I finally got a grasp of it and I think it came out well.
My U.S. Constitution exam is in the morning. I studied all evening with my classmates for it. I feel better about it than I have for some of the other exams.
After that exam is over, I am finished for the semester and I will be on my way home! I loaded my iPod with Christmas music, which I will be playing the entire way home. I can’t wait.
You should read Richard Wagner’s 1980 article Boom and Bust: The Political Economy of Economic Disorder.
- Day 350 – Studying, Studying, Studying
Here is where I’ve been studying all night – a room in the math building. I pushed multiple desks together to make a table.
My linear algebra exam is tomorrow morning. I am feeling a little better about it than I was yesterday.
On the plus side, my two exams today went well, or at least I felt like I did well. The results won’t be out for a week or so.
I apologize for the lame posts this week. I’ve been devoting a lot of energy to studying, and not much is left for creativity. I’ve been economizing on brain power.
- Day 349 – I Wish I Was…
…at home, looking out my back window at the snow-covered porch, yard, and trees. Then going to stand by the fireplace to warm up, then settling down on the couch to read a good book.
Unfortunately, multiple finals stand in the way, and I am very worried about the Linear Algebra final. My stress level is through the roof right now.
On a lighter and happier, less stressful note, my macro final went very well today.
Back to studying.
- Day 335 – Deck the Halls
As soon as everyone returned from Thanksgiving break, they got in the Christmas spirit! Here are two quick and rough shots I took of areas around Simpson dorm:
First Floor North (note: the stuff in the hall is wrapping paper, as they just finished wrapping the doors before this shot)
James and PG’s room
- Day 303 – Spring Semester’s Schedule
It is time to schedule classes for next semester!
After talking to a few professors, friends, and my advisor, I finally worked out my schedule for next semester, The number after the class name denotes the number of credits it is worth:
Symbolic Logic (3)
Theory of Probability (3)
Sophomore Math Seminar (1)
Intro to Philosophy (3)
Intermediate Macroeconomics (3)
Austrian Economics II (3)
Philosophy and Literature in Comics (1)
I think I am most excited about Logic, Probability, and Austrian II. In Austrian II, we read through and discuss Mises’s Human Action in a small group. The math seminar will focus on proof writing, oral presentations, literature research, and using programs like Mathematica to enhance our math skills. It is geared for math majors/minors. As of right now, I am working on a math and economics double major.
- Day 258 – David Henderson
Today, economist and professor David Henderson visited Hillsdale today and gave a talk to Praxis, the political economy club. David Henderson blogs at Econlog. (This is not a photo from the CCA. I have yet to edit those photos.)
