The semester keeps on rollin’ and I have finally made my official/final/ultimate schedule and it’s not looking bad at all! Few courses that deal with the music industry and some marketing to go with that seems nice. The workload of the courses varies a lot and so does the prices of the books… The book for my marketing course is a whopping 150 dollars while the record labels in pop-culture book is only a meager 30 bucks, still they’re almost identical in size. Weird, but hey when in Rome and so forth.
I had to visit the dean of the business department the other day, quite intimidating as usually you only see the dean when you’re doing really badly with your studies or have screwed something up. Wasn’t too bad though, he turned out to be a cool guy and registering for a course a week late was no problem.
The lecturers here really got game, especially the former record label big-shot turned professor leading our music industry classes deserves applause. Each lecture just flies by with the guy. All in all the level of teaching is pretty high, no wonder considering that O-State is among the SUNY’s elite five.
