Sophmore stuggles

By Sam

So far sophomore year has been smooth sailing, not saying that my classes are easy, just that there have not been any major road bumps so far. I say so far because I am currently experiencing one. The dilemma of 2012… what do I do for J term? Looking through the J term courses offered there was one in particular that really caught my eye, it’s called “Cancer Causes/Treatment,” or something like that. Anyway, when I saw this class I was super excited and I thought I knew what I was going to take, but guess what, it is a 185 course. For all those who aren’t Luther students, which I assume is almost everyone, only freshman can take 185 J term classes, meaning I am out of luck. So it was back to square one for me, I began to look again for classes I was allowed to take as an upperclassman. Right now I am leaning towards taking an African History course. My big dilemma now is that I want to take an awesome class for J term, a class I won’t be able to take at any other time here. I am not saying that African History will not be a fun class; I am just saying when else will I be able to take a creative writing class with a well-known author, or a Scandinavian hand carving class with a world famous artist? But also, when will I have the best opportunity to take a history course, a subject I am not too fond of. Thankfully, this is one of the biggest problems in my life right now, so I cannot really complain. Although it is a little frustrating not knowing what to take, but I am not too worried because I will choose at some point and I really doubt I will be able to make a wrong decision.
