@Taeyers:  If you teach bio labs we probably even work in the same building, though if a student makes it to my floor they are most likely lost. I had two lost ones today.

@Cummins59:  I have to say I did really enjoy my job in the plant path department, it’s the only time where people are happy that the plants are dying quickly. It is kind of an odd line of work though. I did a whole study on how to grow the healthiest possible corn in the greenhouse so that we could make it sick and watch it die.

@Eckle:  Hahaha well they might have been mine, because I had another first day of lab this morning with a different group of students! What a small world… I do spend the vast majority of my time over in the new Cardiac/Cancer Research Building across campus though.

@Taeyers:  I basically live up on 7th. I can’t wait until the first week is over and the lower classmen stop taking the elevator down one floor, the stairs are like 12 ft away guys. and it’s way faster. Is that the new reserach building that has the sculpture thing outside of it? I don’t get over to east bank much, so I don’t think I’ve seen it completed.

I got my bachelor’s in political science because my school had no pre-law program. I then went to law school 🙂

@Eckle:  Yeah, for some reason students forget that stairs exist any time they enter a new building. And yes, CCRB is the one with the weird sculpture in the front. You know, the polypeptide that has like a dozen termini and various branching points. Totally biologically plausible, and not at all embarrassing to have in front of a building that houses a ton of molecular biology work… Undecided

I have a diploma in Agriculture, mainly to satisfy my parents because they wanted me to go to school, I didn’t really see a point. Now that I’ve been working for a few years I’m really glad that I did it, I use things that I learned in college nearly every day at work, and it puts me ahead of my peers who didn’t go to post secondary. It’s easy to get an entry level job in my industry without any post secondary, but it’s hard to advance.

I worked my way through college, and I’m also very glad I did that. I never had to take out a loan, so I don’t have to deal with any student debt now. It’s fairly easy to find high paying summer work in my industry, so that helped a lot.

@BlondeMissMolly:  I’m a teaching specialist (not a professor or anything), so I teach the lab component of a course that is comprised of both lecture and lab. Since we teaching specialists don’t run a whole course, the minimum requirement is a BS. A masters degree is actually heavily perferred, but I was an undergraduate TA for 2 years, and head TA for one of those years, so my experience and connections I made in that time helped me out a lot 🙂

@Taeyers:  yeah that’s exactly what I assumed, but since you didn’t say lab I wondered. My school started the undergrad TAs for A/P my senior year and I was selected but couldn’t fit it in, which I was sad about! I always wondered if I would like it.

I got a B.S in Electrical Engineering and an MBA. I couldn’t have gotten the jobs I’ve held without my BSEE. The MBA is because I plan to manage and engineering department (and later an engineering division) one day.

@BlondeMissMolly:  Oops, I thought I did say lab. My mistake. I actually ended up liking being a TA a lot more than I expected, but it’s definitely not for everyone. I know some other TAs struggled with holding their own in front of students that were about the same age or sometimes older. It’s also a lot more of solving other students’ problems than you would expect.

@Taeyers:  yeah, I have no idea why the U does that. The one in front of MCB is the artist’s interpretation of a molecule I felt kinda betrayed when I found that out as an undergrad. The protein outside of Cargill isn’t a real protein either. You would think they would consult some of the thousands of scientists around and put up statues of real things.

BA in liberal studies. it’s the major i had to have to be a teacher. in california, you have to get a BA and then apply to a teaching credential program also called your 5th year. my last year in school, i decided i didn’t want to be a teacher so i finished up my BA and was done with school. i guess my degree transfers to my current job. i’m a front office administrator but i don’t feel i needed an degree for this job (they required one though).
