It’s hard to believe that we’re down to the last few weeks of the semester. The general consensus is that this semester, like many others, flew by in the blink of an eye. It’s the season of term papers and final lab reports. I’d like to congratulate all my peers who are writing senior theses and in the process of defending them and submitting final versions.
March 15 was our “Neighbours Helping Neighbours” event. It was a huge success- we had the perfect amount of student volunteers to assist with all the volunteer opportunities. We had students do cleaning at the Wolfville Farmers’ Market and two L’Arche homes in addition to helping various residents around Wolfville.
Cheaton Cup was March 22. Again, this event was a wonderful day, exemplifying Acadia spirit through a friendly rivalry between two on-campus residences. We raised more than $3,500 for L’Arche Homefires ‘ Building Our Dream campaign! Kevin Cleary, director of Acadia Safety and Security said, “One highlight for me is that the students celebrated and enthusiastically supported their favorite team while at the same time showing respect for each other.”
Acadia students really stepped up to the challenge to make good decisions on this day and all the hard work and planning by many university stakeholders truly paid off.
The Acadia Theatre Company is currently presenting 7 Stories, a hilarious play-taking place on the ledge of the seventh storey of a building. I saw the play on Saturday and I was blown away by the talent of the actors, as well as set builders, lighting directors, etc. Bravo to all involved!
It truly is an exciting time to be an Acadia student and it’s really interesting to see how students get involved in all facets of the university experience.
