2009 August 31: 1st Day Photos, QUANTA

Today, everyone started back at Daytona State College! I am only taking Calculus II, but my professor Brian Smith already covered the syllabus and policies, all of 6.1, and assigned 16 homework problems. An exciting day all around. I gave out 170 copies of Leafy Droplets and 10 copies of my newest article, Practicality, at QUANTA, my calculus class (bldg. 600 rm. 202 11AM-12:20PM), a neighboring class, the cafeteria, and to random strangers. I’m trying to get rid of all the photos I backprinted in 2007, this being the first.

QUANTA is as good as always with 60 new students this semester. Casey, Frank, and Michael aren’t changing the format because it works so well, so today was the introduction and Wednesday will be the scavenger hunt which educates students about the campus. The major learning starts Friday.

Incidentally, the QUANTA home page and reflections page shows photos I took in the Fall 2007 semester.

Anyway, on to today’s photos.

Bldg. 600, the Florida State University College of Medicine, is finally getting some use. My calculus class and many others not related to medicine are now on the second floor. I couldn’t fit the building in one shot.
