Enjoy Yourself Before Finals Begin

This article appeared in the Dec. 4, 2018, issue of the student newsletter.

We're almost at the end of the semester, which means finals are here. But don't worry! Most of the colleges of DCCCD have something to take your mind off things before you sit down to take your tests. 

Play with puppies, play games, stuff your face and allow yourself some time for entertainment in between all your studying to get rid of those pre-exam jitters.
