The road has been long and treacherous, but the end is near. The smell of early morning pancakes, accompanied by ice cold suds, cannot come soon enough for some.

The much-anticipated Bermuda Shorts Day celebrates the last day of classes, which falls on Fri., Apr. 16 this year. Before it was announced the beer gardens were moving inside, Students' Union Vice-President Events Richard Bergen was expecting 6,000 to 8,000 people to attend.

  A convenient excusePDF files may take a moment to load

You've heard it in songs, watched it in movies, used it as an excuse. "It" is the cliche "long distance relationships are too hard." As the school year ends, this phrase becomes somewhat of a mantra around campus.

  Words from the wisePDF files may take a moment to load

On the eve of my third BSD, which has my liver scared senseless, I'd like to share a few lessons I have mostly learned the hard way. You won't find them in any University of Calgary lecture.

I am without a younger apprentice in my life, but I would like to make sure that somebody has the chance to avoid the left-turns I make on a semi-regular basis. So without sounding like that "Grow" girl in the milk commercials, here come some third-year words of wisdom.

  Exploitation most foulPDF files may take a moment to load

The Globe and Mail recently published a series of features on child development, with articles covering many perspectives and providing details on physical, social, and psychological aspects of our younger generation. While I have no kids at this point, I certainly feel that people my age should pay more attention to what's happening to the children in our world.

  Here for the holidaysPDF files may take a moment to load

As an out of town student, I am presented with the same dilemma every year: where should I live for the summer? I have been in university for four years now and every year this decision gets harder. Many issues complicate what some would view as an easy choice. I have weighed the options to the point of exhaustion, and the question is always the same: do I want to save money or do I want to have a fun summer?
