Week 5 of the trimester is always challenging, because it is the first round of exams. I can’t say that it necessarily gets any easier, but you do get used to it. Some exciting news on campus, since COVID and all the vaccine mandates, student council can gradually begin hosting events again. Our first Student Council event will be the Club Lunch. Historically this event was an opportunity for students to learn more about all the clubs on campus, join them and share a meal with their fellow students. Adjustments will be made so that it can be as safe as it can be in this new world that we are living in. Also, the fountain is working again on campus, hopefully this is a sign for things to come!
