On Monday’s, I usually start my day by waking up at 7:30 a.m. I get ready, drink some coffee and eat either a banana or an apple. Most of my classes this quarter are in the morning, which is something I prefer so that I can have the rest of the day available.
At 7:50 a.m. approximately I head to my 8:00 a.m. class at Sturm Hall. I use my bike so it takes me less time to get to my classes. From 8:00 to 9:50 a.m. I have my Economics: A Critical Introduction course followed by VLSI Design at 10:00 a.m. I attend this course at the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS building) which is located in the Southern part of DU.
At 10:50 a.m. I finish my class and have about an hour of break before my next class. I usually stay at the ECS building either finishing homework or eating something at Rollin’ n Bowlin’ which has great fruit-based smoothies and avocado toasts. This healthy option is great and keeps my energy up for the rest of the day.
Then at 12:00 p.m. I attend my Engineering Electromagnetics class which finishes by 1:50 p.m. After I finish my classes, I sometimes grab a coffee or a drink from Starbucks located at the Community Commons. This building is located at the center of campus and also has many food options in the second floor.
I usually attend work meetings for about an hour (3:00 – 4:00 pm) at University Hall. I work as the Social Media & Outreach Intern for the DU Global Ambassadors, which is organized by the International Admissions Office. After my work meeting, I go back home and take some time to rest or just hang out with my friends.
At around 6:00 p.m. I head to the university gym, which is located at the Coors Fitness Center. My friends and I go together to the gym quite often which I believe is better, since we can plan what exercises to do and help each other to do the exercises correctly. I work out for about an hour and then I head back home.
Before going to bed I usually eat dinner while doing some homework or finishing some emails. And then I get my backpack ready for the next day.
