Hey folks! Here we are already in the month of NOVEMBER and the bulk of the semester is done! Now is that point of the semester where things either seem to slow down for a few weeks until final exams come closer or things tend to pick up speed! Which way are they going for you currently? Right now, things are slowing down a bit for me as I've gotten a couple of big exams out of the way in recent weeks. That won't last forever, though, especially as it is time to be looking ahead and picking out courses for the spring semester!
Have you met with your advisor yet to finalize your schedule for the spring? If not, you will definitely want to soon so you get the courses you want! My schedule is going to be a full load of 18 credit hours! It is a bit overwhelming the first time you do it, but after that, you may as well load up with as many credits as you can so why not do it?!
With Thanksgiving and the Holiday seasons approaching, now is the time to especially be thinking of how to help out those in need. Next week, November 8th through 12th, is Hunger and Homelessness Week and the JACCE is doing a wide range of things to have a positive impact on the lives of others! There will be a clothing drive the whole week as well as the annual Canstruction and even visits to Carpenter's Place along with providing a Thanksgiving Dinner to those in need at Emmanuel Lutheran Church! So if you have any time to help, the JACCE would be more than happy to have your assistance!
If you are looking for a good fall time this weekend, stop by near the Tennis Courts this Sunday night for the campus Bonfire Night! It is open to all students and will include hot cider, hot chocolate, and even s'mores! There will also be music! It will just be an enjoyable time overall for all students and provide a great way to close out the weekend! Be sure to join in the fun, it is from 7 pm to 10 pm!
I hope that the semester continues to go well for you and that you're enjoying the cool, but nice fall weather!
Until next time...
