So tonight was the Senior/Faculty Banquet. It's this thing they have every year where the senior class and the professors have dinner and awards are handed out. It wasn't as painfully boring as I thought it would be. Of course, this is probably because I was sitting with the math and computer science departments, which are made of win. (And not because everyone got drunk, either--we're naturally
fun and awesome.)
It's funny--I heard that some students were talking about how awkward it was to socialize with their professors. The math and CS departments do so much together outside of classes--eat lunch on Fridays, have the Non-Denominational Winter Holiday Party every year, have end-of-the-year parties--and all of the professors are incredibly friendly. So I didn't find it awkward at all to spend an evening with my professors, fellow CS major, and IT and math major friends.
Yeah, I said fellow CS major
--major, singular. There are a grand total of two
CS majors in the senior class, and one IT major. There are a bunch of minors who are also made of awesome (hi, miraclaire
!), but, really, the department is tiny. Maybe that's why we're so friendly.
So anyway, we went, talked, had dinner--which was, I must say, a hell of a lot better than the regular Bartol fare--and sat through all the usual speechifying. I shared the Computer Science Award with my friend (which actually surprised me, as I wasn't expecting to win anything). And I didn't read the book I brought! Aren't you all so proud of me? *grin*
So, it was a pretty good night. And I'm not in a bitchy mood anymore, which is always a good thing.
