Hi everyone my name is Ben Caldwell and I am going to be a senior this coming year. I am a Human Biology Major through Lyman Briggs. I will hopefully going to medical school after undergrad but I’m not sure where I will be going.
To explain my post title, I am one of the least organized people I know which explains why I am late on the first post. It is also the reason why I have no idea where I will be after the 2014-2015 school year. I do know without a doubt that I want to go to medical school because it is an area that absolutely fascinates me.
I have taken one anthropology course, ANP 370 Culture, Health, and Illness. From the sounds of it, the subject matter of this class will somewhat overlap with what I learned in that course, but it will be worth covering again. That class focused primarily on HIV/AIDS in Malawi, so hopefully this class will give a broader scope on anthropological methods. Anthropology hasn’t really “hooked” me yet as it appears it did others, but perhaps this class will change that.
Aside from classes I am an RA in a social psychology lab so I get to run the experiments that all the psych students participate in. It’s very interesting getting to participate in the research process and I have been lucky enough to do it since my freshman year.
I spend my free time mostly watching movies and listening to music. I’m an avid concert-goer and can’t wait for the Commonground Music Festival in Lansing next week.
Looking forward to a good semester and hopefully I can get organized and stay on top of things. Also looking forward to learning some new, useful, and interesting things!
