Getting into the important short rows

A quick look at the calendar shows that the Coker College Fall 2009 semester is quickly coming to an end. You can feel the end approaching as you read FACEBOOK lamentations about all the work that is suddenly coming due in classes all over the campus. You can see it in the posters announcing book buy backs (hope the students don't sell until after they use them for final study).

Complicating the work load is the fact that there continues to be a great deal going on outside the classroom. The basketball teams will be opening their regular seasons. This weekend A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM has a performance on Saturday evening and the closing performance on Sunday afternoon. Next week on November 18 there is a Speech Contest. The night before is a Faculty piano and voice recital. On Sunday, November 22, there is a performance by the Coker Singers of Requiem and the night before that the students have their Winter Formal at the Hartsville Country Club.

After today there are six Monday, Wednesday, Friday classes left in the semester. There are four Tuesday/Thursday classes left in the semester. Time does disappear and that is why many are feeling the end-of-semester pressure, including faculty.
