Party and/or Nap time!

CONGRATS!!!!  First years, you made it through your first semester of Law School.  It gets easier (somewhat) from here.   Second, third years, another semester in the books (in a virtual world, I guess that would be cloud??)

On an informational note, the Library will be CLOSED Dec 24 - Jan 1.  There will be no swipe card access during this time.

Enjoy your well-deserved break and parties.  I am off for my well-earned naps.

See you in 2014.
