Sunday after Thanksgiving

Not quite 1:30 on the Coker College campus this Sunday after Thanksgiving. Reading over some of the Facebook posts I imagine that things will be picking up pretty much the rest of the day as students head back into the final push of the semester.

Lots of students said they had been doing papers. Fact is, I spent some time over this break getting final exams ready for my classes. The first final comes this Saturday morning as classes end on Thursday. Friday is a reading day and the exams start on Saturday.

I expect the library, which is open its regular Sunday hours, will be busy soon. The Coker Singers have an afternoon rehearsal for their Tuesday Night concert here in Hartsville. The Coker Men's basketball team had games on Friday and Saturday but the women are in action this afternoon at Coastal Carolina.

It is the last week of classes and there is a great deal going on. This afternoon I have to make final preparations for the SPEECH CONTEST that is set for Wednesday evening beginning at 6:30. I think we have eight competitors for the prize money. This is a joint event between our communication section and the Student Services. Hope we will get some people out to watch the speeches. Already mentioned the Coker Singer concert that is at 7:30 at the First Presbyterian Church in Hartsville, Thursday night is the Late Night breakfast -- a Coker tradition the night before reading day. The baseball team has a fund raiser -- BBQ lunch on Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to get funds for the Spring Break tourney in Melbourne Florida. That luncheon and fund raiser is with Westwood Barbecue.

So, it is a headlong dash to the end of the semester with a lot of twists and turns before that finish line.
