SUSU will be taking a rather different approach to supporting students this exam season, according to VP Academic Affairs Sasha Watson.
He announced on his blog this afternoon that on the contrary to the free highlighters and balloons given out in January’s exam season, this time round SUSU will be hosting a range of entertainment events on concourse in order to keep us all sane in this highly stressful period.
Next week (Tuesday 22nd – Thursday 31st May) will see the red brick area transformed into an entertainment site from 11am – 2pm each day, which will include a BOUNCY CASTLE, a CRAZY GOLF course and a PETTING ZOO. Exams?…WHAT exams?
But SUSU apparently can’t do ANYTHING right: one angry commenter observed “this is such a f***ing stupid idea to do slap bang in the middle of exams”. Lighten up, folks – the rationale behind this move is for us all to remember that regular breaks are important during revision, as they keep you refreshed, allow you to consolidate the information you’ve taken in, and generally stop you going completely bonkers. Say you’re revising in Hartley Library or Murray Building: realistically how much would you have learnt in the half hour it would take to pop over the road to SUSU, let out all that frustration on the bungee run then calmly return to your desk like the hard-working adult you are?
We at the Tab are really excited about this, and will definitely be attending the new SUSU ZOO to blow off a bit of steam when the going gets tough.
We hope to see you all there.
