The Civil Cohort: a camaraderie | #5

Hey everyone!

It’s been a hot minute since my last post, more than a month or so ago. With the rush of semester two, exams, and immediately working full time as an intern, there has been little time for me to properly sit down and write blog posts as much as I had wanted to. But, I’m back to end the year with the thoughts that have been rattling around in my head throughout this year – one of which is the title of this post. 

I say it now, the students taking Civil along you will be probably one of the greatest form of support. Whether it be helping you understand a concept, complaining collectively about how tired/stressed/hungry you are (I feel that’s all I ever alternated between during semester), or sharing thoughts about that test through sad reacts and memes. 

It’s a great comfort to have others who have the exact same deadlines be in it with you – and it makes the journey a little less lonely and slightly less stressful. So while yes it is likely you’ll have a group of friends that you’ll stick to, don’t be afraid to use the labs and projects to expand the circle of Civil students you know. It doesn’t hurt to have more than one person to double check what’s a shear centre, either. 

That’s it from me today! 

Until next time
