Last Saturday was graduation day at UMASS Lowell day for many, including myself. This day had been a long time coming, but the time at UMASS Lowell in the meteorology program was well worth it.
When I started, the campus definitely looked different then it does now. The parking was much more difficult, there was a dorm on north campus, and there were less buildings. However, the meteorology program was very much similar and it was still in Olney room 312.
I have very much enjoyed my time at Lowell. I have specifically enjoyed my time in the program. I have learned a lot about the weather and specifically forecasting the weather. The professor who I felt like I learned the most from was Dr. Frank Colby. Dr. Colby teaches a lot of the forecasting classes at Lowell, and as my main interest is in forecasting, I enjoyed his class a lot. Dr. Colby is very knowledgeable in the weather and forecasting and teaches what he knows very well.
Now that I’ve graduated, I look forward to taking what I learned while at Lowell and applying it to a job in the real world.
