This was quite a productive day! Despite not having class, I managed to accomplish a ton of small projects in addition to my homework.
On my History MAP Project, I met with Professor Purcell again today to discuss my ever-growing to-do list. Besides discussing where my focus will be, we also examined some topics that I will be studying alongside the project, specifically collecting oral histories and examining the digital humanities. I’m excited to begin the hard research for my project this week, which includes delving into the master building plans for the College over the past decade and a half.
I also had a swim captain’s meeting today. We are gearing up to have an awesome season and discussed community service, plans for the Alumni Meet, and suit possibilities. It’s going to be a great experience and I know that the hard work will pay off.
Next, I completed a ton of projects and poster drafts for my Wellness Technology Internship. I’ve been doing research into heart rate variability monitors and other wellness technologies to see how we can incorporate it into our wellness programs at Grinnell. I also created a digital form for alcohol-related incidents to replace a paper version. This should allow the Wellness Department and Residence Life to better quantify the data they examine and observe trends. This should be helpful for us to create more targeted educational programming to prevent incidents from occurring.
Finally, I completed some design projects for various groups around campus. My main goal with poster designs are to make them eye-catching and easily readable.
All in all, a good day! Enjoy the poster design drafts below!
