Final Exams and Winter Break

Winter break is in sight! There’s just that one little hill to climb and then… wait, it’s a trap! Like vultures, a flock of exams swoop out of the air and attempt to thwart you from reaching your goal. But with a trusty pen in hand, you write those exams – slaying them with a sea of ink and knowledge, leaving your path wide open to achieve winter holiday bliss.

Silly analogies aside, isn’t it great to be completely/almost done?

I remember my first final exam… I showed up to my regular classroom not knowing that the rooms are sometimes switched around – and spent the next fifteen minutes (it felt like a lot longer) running around in a panic until I finally figured out where my test was taking place. Ah, memories… If you still have a test or two to take, you can avoid this by checking your exam schedule on the Bridge: click Registrar’s Office and Student Services, Registration, and then Personal Final Exam Schedule. Never assume it’s in your normal classroom!

If this was your first semester, congratulations on making it through! Take some time to reflect back on your first semester at the University of Lethbridge – it’s amazing what can happen in just a few short months, hey? Now you can look forward to a nice little break before beginning it all again in a couple of weeks…

Okay, so most of you probably don’t want to be thinking about school on your winter break. But if you need some reading material to occupy you during your downtime while home for Christmas, why not pick up some books from your reading list at the University Bookstore? On December 19th, you will be able to use the online TextFinder to check out your required readings for next semester: It never hurts to read ahead!

This is my last post of 2011. So I’ll end by wishing you all an enjoyable break. And be sure to check out this page as my weekly blog continues in the New Year!

Until then,
