High school killed science

Hi, my name is Tyler Confair, and I am a freshman. I am one of the few commuters as a freshman attending Penn State University. I am going to be majoring in Professional Golf Management and plan to work with merchandise. I only live about fifty minutes away in a small town called Jersey Shore, PA. It is not as bad as I thought it was considering I have no Friday classes. Assuming that everyone thought of the show when I said Jersey Shore, the school got a couple of the members to come meet everyone. The reason they didn’t come was that they did not have anywhere to party at. Something that is a big deal around the town is the Little League World Series which is currently going on.

When I was scheduling my classes with my advisor, she told asked me if I liked science. I told her I hated it because of the teachers I have had in the past. They never made the class exciting because it seemed as if their paycheck was more important then having fun with everyone. It was a bland class and I hated every minute of it. Once I stopped ranting about my old high school teachers, she told me Andrew was the guy to have to change my view on  science. I kind of just figured she was just trying to get me to pick something so she could get out of the room faster or just did not want to hear anything else I had to say. So, after seeing the syllabus and seeing what he expects out of us makes me very excited to finally enjoy a class I have always disliked. He lets us control what we learn and if we do not like it, we have the ability to pick something everyone likes. I also need to apologize to my advisor for not believing in what she said about him because she definitely proved me wrong.

Like said before, science is not my thing but I have always been interested into learning new things scientist find or create. Maybe it was all the stupid labs the teachers made us do and did not relate to anything we were discussing in class. I just knew I was ready to get out of my science class as soon as I walked in to start it. Golf deals with a lot of science, and it is not the science he is goiImage result for golf and scienceng to teach us sadly. That would pretty cool if he started to talk about “how to perfect golf.” Which will never happen. I also have a thing for the supernatural and what could be beyond the planet. Will there be a
day when we finally reach contact with another life form, with the technology rapidly growing and with more scientist trying to solve the same question. It will happen one day, and I do not know what to expect when it does if I am alive. Here is a link explaining this thought What if extraterrestrial observers called, but nobody heard?

I just hope I get the chance to finally enjoy science and learn new and exciting things that are currently being viewed by scientist. I also want to get a better perspective on extrterrestrial life and what scientist know so far. Even though I do not like science at the moment, I think Andrew is going to make sure I leave satisfied with taking his class.

    Hey Tyler! Really enjoyed your post. Hit on one of my interests which is science in the game of golf. I think it is very interesting that science could potentially help my golf game. Hopefully Andrew can hit on some of this during class because I’d be eager to get out and try it. I think its awesome that you are going to major in Pro Golf Management and feel that its great to be able to major in something you love. Please hit me up I would love to get out and hit the course sometime up here. I am eager to check it all out. Here is a link I found that explains how the use of TrackMan data is revolutionizing the way the game of golf is played and practiced today. Give it a click

    Hello Tyler! I just wanted to say welcome to Penn State and you will LOVE the PGM program here. RPTM has some of the best professors at Penn State. I have met a lot of people who are in the PGM major and it is funny because a lot of the students I have met have always asked me to come golf with them and which in return, I laugh because I cannot golf. I think it is really cool how you are interested in learning about what is beyond planet Earth, but I found this article that I actually think you will love and may help with Andrew not talking about golf.
