It’s funny the things you learn in college. For example, all this time I thought that flu season was during winter. Turns out it’s the week before June. A viral bug has been making its way around campus, and it has put the entire school in peril. Okay, so maybe it’s only hit a few students, but as luck would have it, I was one of them. I spent all of yesterday in bed, missing classes, taking naps, and having my friends wait on me. It was terrible.

Prior to that, it had been a good week. I was able to finish some much-needed quizzes and assignments, part of the heavy work load that always piles up at the end of the quarter. I also gave a 20-minute presentation on Christ’s Second Coming for my Last Day Events religion class. I’d say it went well, except for my 46 “umm’s” (thanks for counting, Mike).

Wednesday’s release of the Campus Chronicle was significant, as it was the first issue created by next year’s staff—a staff that I am proud to be a part of. The paper will be returning to a newspaper format from the magazine style that was instituted this year by Peter Katz’s crew. Whichever way it’s structured, I see the Chronicle as a very important, often overlooked aspect to our campus. Having a periodical that serves the students by reporting news, covering events, and writing features adds so much to a campus that is on the small side, such as ours.

With only Dead Week and finals remaining, it becomes easy to look with great anticipation to the start of our long-awaited summer break. But truth be told, I’m already beginning to miss some of the things I’ll be without for three months. Summer break is great, but so is being at this college.
