Sophomore Status Achieved | College


It’s official: I’m now a sophomore in college!

As you read this, I am moving into my new dorm room and bracing myself for my first semester of sophomore year to begin. Currently I’m an English major (and potential Hispanic Studies double major) at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. 

The thought of starting a new year and semester of college is both incredibly exciting at a bit nerve-racking. Leaving freshman year behind means that I will have more independence, opportunities, and responsibilities than ever before. It’s all a little daunting, to say the least!


Nevertheless, I’m ecstatic to be able to see my college friends again and get back into a routine of classes, clubs, and countless campus events. I love steady routines and schedules, so this aspect of college is actually really comforting to me.

As per usual I’m taking four classes this semester, which are:

  • Evolution of English
  • Contemporary Women Writers {Spanish}
  • Modern Spanish America {History}
  • Introductory Physics {to fulfill my science requirement}

I’m definitely the most nervous about the physics class because science isn’t really my forte. However, I’m looking forward to the Spanish literature class because we’ll be reading several interesting novels over the course of the semester. Hopefully everything goes well!

It’s so strange to think that this new school year is finally here. my first year of college certainly had its ups and downs, but all in all I couldn’t have asked for a better freshman year at Wheaton. I can’t wait to see what exciting adventures this year will bring!

Wish me luck!

  1. Physics was the class I also chose to fulfill my Science with a lab requirement. To my surprise it was an engaging course that I began to look forward to. If it doesn’t click right away I highly suggest getting help from your professor. Also, make sure to take good notes! Good luck on your new year and adventure. Enjoy it! (:

  2. Ahhh, congratulations on starting sophomore year! I’m technically considered to be a junior now, based on credits, but it’s still only my second year in college too and I’m looking forward to making this year an even better one than last year! Freshman year was sort of trial and error, you know? I have BIG PLANS for this year.

    1. haha I feel the same way! It feels strange to not be a freshman, but it’s also a huge relief. I actually have an inkling about what I’m doing now! 🙂 Hope you have an awesome year!!


  3. Wooo congrats and good luck! Your classes sound exciting, though I get your nerves about physics since that’s not really my thing either. The others sound really interesting though, so hopefully they make up for it 🙂

    1. I hope so! I had my first physics class yesterday and the professor was actually really nice, so I’m feeling a bit better about it… but still a little anxious! Thank you so much! 🙂

  4. It’s so interesting hearing about college from other countries! We don’t have any of those intro classes or science requirement things – my subjects are all just related directly to my degree. And I live at home so I have to commute every day by train 😦

    GOOD LUCK for sophomore year 🙂 🙂

    1. That’s so nice! I wish I didn’t have to take all of these extra classes, especially the science and math ones. Commuting by train sounds like a hassle, though. But it does solve the homesickness problem that I have sometimes.
      Thanks so much!! 🙂


  5. This was a great post! I am also in my sophomore year now and feeling the same way you are. I just had to start my own blog for school and I’m writing mine about things I didn’t necessarily know before coming to school last year. I would love if you checked it out! its called nocollegeknowledge
