from your friends at
Hang in there Nontrad
students.... semester break is just around the corner!
Keep pushing yourself to successfully navigate finals week
and the break will be waiting for you...just in time!
Traditional students look forward to
the holiday break to go back home and spend time with family and friends, hit
the ski slopes, and in general chill out and have fun. Oh, those were
Us Nontrads have a luxury of a
different sort--the luxury of responsibilities. Responsibilities to
our lives outside the classroom. We finally have a little extra time
for our children, our neglected spouses, and our homes! A brief time
over the holidays when we don't have to put off helping our kids with their
homework so we can do ours! A period when we can look forward to a
quiet evening with our spouses after dinner instead of rushing to get things
cleaned up so 'I can just have a few hours of study' after the kids go to
While a Nontrads semester break may
look different than the more care free traditional student, it is still
a break. Make sure you spend time with those people, family and
friends, who are supporting you throughout the semesters and make
sure they know you appreciate them. While you are making sacrifices to
accomplish your academic goals, they are sacrificing for you too.
You should plan to spend time with
those important to you, catch up on things that you have put off during
the semester, and give yourself a much deserved break when you can.
Relaxing and recharging yourself emotionally is a good way to
come back to campus in January revitalized and ready to go!
Your ANTSHE family wishes your family
the very HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS,
and safe and HAPPY
