We're nearing the end of the semester, which means the most stressful part of the year is coming up: finals. It goes without saying that this is a very tense time of year for many students, and it is crucial that we maintain a healthy lifestyle and a clear mental state. Check out the ASI event calendar for details on events such as Beach Balance Bingo, Project Chill and Food For Thought, all planned for your well-being while we push through our exams.

Additionally, on behalf of all of your student government executives, I would like to thank all of the students that attended any of our Take a Sec with the Execs events. Myself, Vice President Almahdi and Treasurer Luna received phenomenal input from the student body, and we had a lot of fun in the process. We hope to see you around campus in the future as we continue to process your comments and advocate on your behalf!
