A Day in the Life: Jeffrey Lowe (Questrom)


7:00 a.m.
Wake up. It’s an early day for me because I have an 8:00 a.m. class.

8:00 a.m.
Class in the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS). I’m taking an Environmental Science class called Introduction to Beach and Shoreline Processes. We learn about how the world’s beaches and coasts affect life for plants, animals, and humans. We’re even going on a field trip to Cape Cod later this semester to see what we’ve learned up close.

11:30 a.m.
Lunch at Marciano Commons. Marciano is a great dining hall—there are two floors and more than a dozen food stations to choose from.


12:30 p.m.
Back to CAS for another class in the afternoon. This time, it’s Writing 100: The Modern Novella, where we learn about modernism in literature and discuss its impacts. Most first-year students are required to take WR 100, and there are literally hundreds of course topics to choose from.

2:00 p.m.
Head over to the Questrom School of Business, where I have a work-study job at the Office for Student Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives. I work with students and faculty to create a welcoming community for students of color in Questrom.

4:30 p.m.
Give a Dean’s Host tour of Questrom. As a Dean’s Host, I lead prospective students and families on in-depth tours of Questrom and occasionally welcome the Dean’s guests and business executives to various events and programs throughout the building.


6:30 p.m.
Back to Marciano Commons with friends in my dorm (I told you Marciano was great!)

7:30 p.m.
Walk back to my dorm room in The Towers, located on Bay State Road. It’s just a quick walk from the dining hall.

8:00 p.m.
Time to study. I’m also taking Intro to Finance, Intermediate Macroeconomic Analysis, and Global Film History II: 1960s to the Present.

11:00 p.m.
Lights Out. Time for bed.
