My name is Christine LaLonde I am 23 years old and this is my last course at Michigan State University! At the end of this class I will have my Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology with a concentration in Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology. I transferred to MSU in fall 2010 after obtaining my Associates in Science at Schoolcraft Community College in Livonia. I am taking this class because I have always had an interest in archaeology. After taking intro archaeology class last year I really liked it and have always been drawn to Egyptian History and I am now taking this class to complete my last elective requirements. Once I am done with this course I am considering transferring (again) to Wayne State University for another program for veterinary technology. Although I might take the next year off to look for internships and research experience. I am considering Wayne State due to financial reasons and because it is much closer to where I currently live now and am working, which is the Metro Detroit area.
In addition to being a MSU student I am a waitress at a local restaurant/bar in Dearborn Heights, MI. I love animals and I volunteer with the Michigan Humane Society and I hope to one day make a career out of my love of animals. I have been a vegetarian for the past six years and I enjoy going outdoors, bike riding, kayaking, camping and enjoy relaxing whenever I can.
This is my third online class at MSU and so far it is unlike anything I have taken so far, but I am very intrigued and can’t wait to get started. I am a little nervous about all the writing so after we submit if anyone has an comments or critiques please do so, I welcome all the help I can get!
