It’s the end of the semester!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Before you write your first exam, take a few moments to take a deep sigh of relief. In the midst of all the chaotic studying and last-minute assignments, it is important to acknowledge the beauty of today.

Classes for the Winter 2017 semester are over.

That’s right – no more lectures, labs, or tutorials. The only thing standing between you and the summer are some exams and maybe a few assignments. Otherwise, you are free from your schedule and summer is just around the corner.

Do something nice for yourself sometime this week – go out to the club, sip a mimosa, make a grilled cheese, make a nice bubble bath for yourself, watch a movie on Netflix, watch a series on Netflix, watch two series on Netflix, complain about the new rating system on Netflix. Whatever it is that makes you happy, do it. You deserve it all.

As this is the end of the semester for students, it is also the end of the semester for the Baron. We will be shutting down until September as we too have Netflix series to watch. I hear that Santa Clarita Diet is a hoot!

While we do have a few pieces coming out over the exam weeks (including a piece introducing our new SRC!), we, like you, are ready to run to the beach.

I am so proud of the work we have done over the past four months and I cannot wait to return in the Fall.

To UNB Saint John’s graduates, I congratulate you and I wish you the best of luck in the future. Whether you’re joining the workforce, taking time off, or heading for more education, thank you for your hard work and for serving as excellent role models, students, and friends to our little campus community.

Good luck on exams, have a great summer and see you in Fall 2017!
