Other When do your classes start?

    Don't worry it's still summer break! :smile:

    For most students classes start in a few weeks. When is your first day of instruction and what school?

    My classes start on August 22nd so next week for me haha. I am currently attending Missouri School of Science and technology in Rolla, Missouri. I am going to be a sophomore. I made some very hard decisions over the summer and decided to switch my major from Physics to Nuclear Engineering for various reasons but I am eager and excited to start soon.

    I start classes in a week. First semester of an electrical engineering phd program, I've been RAing for the group since May though. Taking,

    Random processes, advanced computer architecture, and neuromorphic computing hardware.

    My research floats around emerging device architectures and image/video processing applications.

    Monday. I do sort of miss it... but then I don't.

    Some students will arrive to class just having fed, prepared, and dropped off a screaming toddler at the babysitters. I'm thinking about filling a box full of dollar surprises to see if I can bribe mine to not be so upset after separation. You can open it only after I leave, okay? Might work.

    I start my classes on September 6th at the University of Winnipeg :)

    September 22 I think. Senior year whew! I also will be a peer instructor for statistical mechanics, kinda nervous!! I've peer instructed for freshman mechanics before but this upper division class is kind of the GPA killer where I'm from lol.

    20 September here, finally starting my math bachelor at the EPFL. I started out as a chemist last year but ended up switching this year.

    No school for me (I'm retired), but the community college where I taught and many of the colleges I attended were on the quarter system, so fall quarter didn't start until late September.

    All universities in Switzerland start on the 20th of September, if I'm not mistaken. I think it's around the same time for France too.
