Unformatted text preview: Detailed Opinions SENIOR CLASS 2007 Students opinions gathered the last day of class. I have no complaints about the structure of the class or the way it was taught. It can be very stressful at times, but in the end I have learned a lot. I think the part that I took away from it is the fact that the class isnt necessarily geared towards teaching any technical aspects (although it does some), it teaches hard work, decision making, leadership, and possibly the most important, confidence. Although I felt that I was prepared to enter industry after the fall semester, I know now that I can accomplish anything. Well capstone was a whole lot of work, and it even felt like two whole semesters split up by spring break! But, I am extremely proud of all that my partner and I accomplished in such a short period of time on our project! It's amazing what a little pushing can do. I learned a whole lot about different engineering softwares, and I am so relieved that graduation is a week away! Thanks for pushing us! I cannot believe this class is over. There were times of despair, frustration, joy, and more importantly accomplishment. I will not and cannot say that the journey was an easy one. But just as with all chemical engineering courses, the satisfaction for working hard in the end was completely worth it. I remember the first day of class and sort of being afraid of it because of everything I had heard for years. I just put forth all of the effort I had and I think that it turned out alright. I told you at the very beginning that I wanted to end this class with no regrets. I have done things in my life that I ended feeling as if I could have done more or worked harder. Capstone ended up being more of a mission for me, and I would challenge other students to feel the same way. We only have one shot at capstone and to apply all of what we have worked for in the last few years. I never let anyone deter me from my work regardless of how much fun they were out having. I am one to work before I play and if not enough work has been done in my eyes, there will be no fun. You are right that the class is very intense. In fact, I came in thinking I knew how to push myself and felt that way for much of the semester. But I did not know what pushing myself meant until the last two weeks before the project was due. I was getting 4-5 hours of sleep a night and working all day. This was not from procrastination, but more that I wanted my paper and project to be more in-depth and to achieve a state of excellence I did not think possible. I wanted to have an amazing finished project to show fellow students, professors and parents. I wanted to show my potential and hard work that I had not been able to show others throughout the years of chemical engineering and college. That was my moment and my chance and I took full advantage and I feel great knowing that I could not have worked harder or with more dedication to the course. harder or with more dedication to the course....
