Shouting from the Rooftop!

Hear ye! Hear ye! The grades are in. The grades are in.

Out of 1000 points available this semester, I earned 943 which makes my grade 94%. An "A". At midterm, I was on the borderline A/B with 91%. I think my final exam grade and term paper grade (195/200pts) bumped me up enough that it wouldn't have mattered if I got lower homework and online discussion grades for the last two weeks. This was a really tough class for me. I practically spent every night studying. Needless to say, I am one happy, happy camper!

The other piece of exciting news....

I was inducted as a new member of Alpha Sigma Lambda! Alpha Sigma Lambda is a national honor society for non-traditional undergraduate students who achieve and maintain outstanding scholastic standards and leadership characteristics while handling additional responsibilities of work and family. In order to be inducted, a student needs to maintain a 3.2 GPA. I've maintained a GPA of 3.9 while working mostly full time and taking care of my home as a single girl. I am so proud of myself!
