Today is the start of the 2018 Fall semester at Grand Rapids Community College. I’ve got a full schedule this semester. I signed up for eight credits spread across three classes, which works out to 4-nights a week. The saving grace to this schedule is that the Metallic and Non-Metallic Joining class, which is two of those nights, doesn’t start until the middle of October.
Tonight, it all starts with PL 201 – Introduction to Philosophy. Lady Ronn took this class earlier, in the Spring part of the Spring/Summer semester, and she enjoyed it quite a bit. I have a different instructor than she did, but I’m looking forward to it and it meets my Humanities elective. According to the catalog, this course includes a consideration of some basic problems of philosophy, philosophic, rationalistic and scientific knowledge, the mind and body, the nature of humanity and self-identity, and values in human conduct from the point of view of historical and contemporary schools of philosophy. Should be interesting.
We’re both getting very close to being done. I’ll have all my HVAC classes completed with the end of the Winter semester and that’ll leave me needing one credit to get my degree, but I think I need a science class to actually get the degree.
So with all that said, here’s what I’m looking at for this semester:
PL 201 – Introduction to Philosophy
Monday 6:15pm-9:15pm 8/27-12/10
HVA 121 – Metallic and Non-Metallic Joining
Tuesday & Thursday 5:30pm-9:30pm 10/16 – 12/13
HVA 275 – Commercial Refrigeration
Wednesday 6pm-10pm 8/29-12/12
