And... that's a wrap! I'll be spending the rest of my night putting together a marketing strategy for my BUSI 406 class and catching up on some reading. The past 4 years have gone by way too quickly, and I'm actually really going to miss study nights like these. Thank you for letting me share parts of my day with you on today's #takeovertuesday Sweet dreams and see you later! 🐑 Photo by Nakisa Sadeghi '17

On Tuesdays, my scuba diving class meets in the Bowman Gray pool. The class culminates in a trip to the Florida Keys at the end of the semester, where we get scuba certified! Hoping I get to see some sea turtles and sunken ships very soon 🐠🐙 #takeovertuesday Photo by Nakisa Sadeghi '17

To be honest, I happen to really enjoy discussing 16th century French tragedies on a Tuesday afternoon. We're reading the play, Les Juives, in my FREN 561 course, taught by Professor Hassan Melehy. Un cours très intéressant! 🤓#takeovertuesday Photo by Nakisa Sadeghi '17

Good morning! I'm Nakisa Sadeghi and I'm a senior from Alexandria, VA, studying French, Business, and pre-med. I'm excited to show you around today on Takeover Tuesday. I had to start my day by checking on the Meyer lemons I'm growing outside of my apartment - the rain last night was quite the blessing 🌱🍋 Can you spot a couple of baby lemons? #takeovertuesday Photo by Nakisa Sadeghi '17

I've been working with the burn clinic this semester through Dr. Pozefsky's Serious Games class by developing a fully immersive virtual reality game with Sam (in the pic!), Damien, and Warren. Studies show that burn patients experience a great reduction in pain during flexibility exercises when they have the sensation of being in a cold and peaceful environment. We pilot and plan our game on real equipment in the hospital on Thursdays. #TakeoverTuesday #HackathonTuesday #ReliefFinally #WizardFrocket 📸: Morgan Howell '17
