What An Awesotronic Year!

It’s almost shocking that we are already through with the 2010/2011 academic year! Indeed, how time flies. I can still vividly remember the Freshers’ Week/Jumpstart events at the beginning of the Fall term and then our very first Semester I lectures which gradually built up to the exams.
