May is here! (Well, almost!) Another semester has flown by, and here we are at the end of another semester already.  Whether you are about to embark on a brand new career, devote your summer to a professional internship or just spend the next three months lying on a sandy beach, don’t forget to take a moment and reflect on the important lessons that living in the Student Residence has brought us.

Big things are happening at the Student Residence right now: Plans are underway to expand Homey Kitchen, Alumni Civility Hall’s “SHAAADDY” was just crowned the “Best Creative Performance” award and the first runner-up in the Inter-hall Singing Contest and two residents are even leading a double life as both an undergraduate student and a member of the Auxiliary Police Force!

We understand that these last few weeks of the semester can be stressful and mentally and physically exhausting.  So, we have put together a list of exam energisers to help you make it through this month with your wellbeing intact.  And, if you’re looking for something to read other than a textbook this month, why not give Julian Baggini’s thought-provoking “The Pig that Wants to be Eaten” a try?

Have a safe, happy and healthy summer!  From all of us ResLink-ers, we wish you the best of luck on your final exams and in whatever adventures your summer months may bring. 

See you next semester!
