On the Brink of Exams

With Monday being the last day of classes, and Wednesday the start of the final exam period, the mood around campus is, in a word, stressed.  Like my fellow students, I have been working on papers and presentations, the last of which is due during my exam period on Thursday.  For me, this weekend promises to be one of work, work, and a little more work. 

However, I won't forget to mention that although the end of the semester means the end of classes, it also means that student activities are winding down before that long period of hibernation that is Winter Break.  So what does this mean for UNC Asheville Students?  For one of my suitemates, Kate, it means a final performance with her a cappella group, All Girl Staff.  AGS will be performing tonight at 8 pm, an event that I will most definitely be attending.  Throughout the semester, I've heard singing coming from Kate's room, and it sounded great.  For those of you who are going to be on campus today, come by the Humanities Lecture Hall at 8 to listen to some sweet music!  Here's a video I found of an AGS performance earlier this year.  Enjoy!  

For students interested in jazz, there will be a jazz concert on Sunday, December 5 that should be fun!  The Studio 18 Vocal Jazz Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, and Wind Ensemble will be performing holiday music in Lapinsky Hall Auditorium.  Stop by at 4 pm and be sure to bring $5 for your ticket!  Listening to music is a great way to relax and relieve stress.  Listening to holiday music is an even better way to get in the spirit of the season and take a mental trip (conveniently bypassing exams) to the end of the semester!
