Hi all! My name is Shanann Hoyos and I am a born and raised Fairbanksian. This is my last semester here as an ME undergrad. I am planning on 2015 being full of travel adventures and grad school in warmer climates. I am sad at the thought of leaving; I have loved growing up in Alaska and I can be such a homebody. If I could, I would easily veg out all winter with a book, hot cocoa, and a crochet project. My excitement to get out there and see things outweighs my already blossoming nostalgia, though. I enjoy nearly everything outdoors, from hiking to kayaking, and I am always looking forward to seeing new places.
I am currently finishing off my Biology minor and a couple core requirements (this class included), with absolutely no Engineering courses, which is going to make this semester very different than what I’m used to. I am looking forward to having all of my classes in Murie, with its floor-to-ceiling windows. If you have never spent a full day inside Duckering without reprieve, trust me, you are not missing out.
As I may have hinted at earlier, I am a complete bookworm. I love, love, love to read whenever I get the chance. My summer read was 1984 and I am just digging into the Princess Bride. I am looking forward to this class because now I’ll get to read no matter how hectic my schedule gets.
Looking forward to spending the semester with you all!
