FESTIVUS – a holiday for the rest of us!

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Cogswell students are invited to join ASB for our first annual Festivus celebration!

When: December 14
Time: 6:00PM
Where: Dragon’s Den at Cogswell College

What, you ask, is Festivus?

It’s for the student who “reserves the right to celebrate a made-up holiday.” Basically it’s a chance to get together with your fellow students and relax after the grueling finals week.

What will happen during Festivus?
Potluck – everyone is encouraged to bring a delicious treat. Pizza and Festivus bagels will be provided.

Airing of Grievances – you get to tell the ones you love how they have disappointed you over the past year (but make it fun – so it’s all in jest and no feelings hurt!)

Feats of Strength – Show how macho (what’s the female version?) you are and challenge the event organizer to an arm wrestling match. Mats may be provided.

Raffle – at the end of the event, everyone who attended will be eligible to win an – as yet to be determined – fabulous prize.

Come and join us and most of all celebrate the end of finals!!

Finals almost over for Cogswell students!

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

The LAST week of the semester is officially halfway over!  Cogswell students are pushing through, I for one, am one of those souls. Fortunately, I finished with finals  on Wednesday, but I fell victim to whatever cold/flu bug is making its rounds days before.  It seems the most common form of Cogswell student during the last days of the semester is someone who is stressed and sick, yet still soldiering on to conquer all that finals are serving up.  There is a light at the end of the semester tunnel, a long and glorious winter break where no student has any worries or academic obligations until January.

Can you hear it?  Listen closely and you can hear the sweet sounds of victory as each Cogswell Digital Art and Animation student turns in their last sketch, illustration, 3d model, or animation final.  Cogswell Digital Audio students are completing their last sight-singing test, final mix of a song, or last moment to show their music theory prowess.  Cogswell Engineering students are writing the last algorithms to their codes and debugging the heck out of it.  Cogswell Entrepreneurship students are laying down the groundwork to begin their student ventures in the spring.  Busy bees they are, and it will all be worth it once grades are posted and those who have persevered find that they did not do it in vain.

Most classes are finished by Friday, but Saturday is the very last day of the semester and a couple of classes are going to be held, but it is definitely freedom after that.  Meanwhile, for those finished by Friday, the ASB is sponsoring a movie night!  Cogswell students will be able to see Tron: Legacy for free on Friday night!  To qualify, though, one had to put their John Hancock on the list outside of the Cogswell ASB office.
