Study Breaks This Week
Hi Everyone,

Congratulations on being so close to finishing the semester! I know
you're tired as you go into this final stretch. I hope it will be
helpful to once again have the cafeteria open for studying. Beginning
on Monday May 1, the cafeteria will be open until 10 pm each night
through Thursday, May 4. I'll be asking Andy to put refreshments in the
cafeteria beginning on Tuesday night.

I hope that during this time of stress you can keep your eyes on the
goal of ministry that your hard work will lead to. I know that you will
be a blessing to many in your future work. May that knowledge sustain
you through the long nights of reading, writing, and studying.

Take good care,


Dr. Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life
