My final fall semester at Rice University has begun! I’m officially a senior, and I am majoring in art history with a minor in anthropology. It feels wonderful to be in my final year at Rice, although I’m now facing a new set of challenges. While I no longer need to worry about fulfilling my graduation requirements (hooray!), I do have to juggle more extracurricular commitments than ever before.
I spend my Mondays and Wednesdays interning at Asia Society Texas Center, my Tuesdays and Thursdays are filled with art history and anthropology classes, and my Fridays are dedicated to Rice’s admissions office (I am continuing to blog and I am now a senior interviewer). On top of all that, I am completing an honors thesis in art history, which requires an extensive amount of independent study.
Interestingly enough, I can also emphasize with high school seniors. When I applied to colleges back in 2009, I was almost certain that I would never complete another school application in my life. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I’m now applying to graduate programs focusing on museum and art education, so I have had to immerse myself in standardized testing and general essays. It is a tedious process, but I am crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!
