Sophomore Success News - April 2013

April Showers

April showers bring May flowers, or so the saying goes. Now that spring break has come and gone, you may feel like it is raining assignments, tests, and papers. With classes ending at the close of the month (April 30), you're probably right. Before you start concentrating on final exams and plans for the summer, make sure to take some time to prepare for the fall semester. Pre-registration for Summer and Fall runs April 15-19, with open registration beginning on April 20. Also, don't forget that Tax Day 2013 is Monday, April 15.
