A week and a day: one more full week of classes plus one last class day on Mon 5/2 and the SP'11 term officially ends — with finals beginning on Fri 5/6 and running through Thu 5/12. Thanks to all of you who stopped by ODS to talk with Susan L about your TAFs by the deadline of Fri 4/22 — and please note that as per the email reminders sent to all students — as of now you will need to make any and all finals arrangements with your professors. Best of luck from all of us on your course-studying, paper-writing and test-taking — and don't forget to take some deep yoga cleansing breaths on a regular basis throughout the coming weeks!

Happy almost-Spring as we are about to enter the annual Room Selection process — as well as midterms season as you also prepare for Spring Break, which is March 14-18. ODS will be open throughout spring break if you need us for any reason — and we wish all of you the best as you prepare for midterms. Here's hoping that you will have a restful and restorative spring break!
