I spent my weekend...

In class! And I liked it!

I had my first experience with the part-time program's weekend classes. Classes went from 5pm to 9pm on Friday night, then all day on Saturday and Sunday. Friday night and Sunday were International Trading Environment and Saturday was Leadership.

Although I have been part-time since the summer, I only took evening classes in the fall. Evening classes are held at the Point Grey campus and often contain a mix of both part-time and full-time students and there tends to be more full-time than part-time because only PT students who want to drive to campus during week take those classes.

The weekend classes are held at the Robson Square campus downtown, which is a nice change - even if the place is like a bunker.

The material tends to move pretty quickly but I think the quality of the experience is much better in the sense that the other students participate in class and seem to be prepared. Plus, when it comes time to get group work done - there is no sitting around waiting for somebody to take the lead. We had a group meeting that was so fast, I blinked and almost missed it.

No classes for the next few weekends, just homework and prep for the next instances. Now I have to go home and get some laundry done. I used to do my laundry on Sunday nights but I switched my time recently.
