‘Twas the night before Christmas … oh no, wait, I’m getting ahead of myself.
‘Twas the night before finals, when all through the library, not a student was stirring, not even a computer mouse. The books were spread out by the desk with stress, in hopes that the holidays would soon be there.
Though finals may be a stressful time in colleges around the globe, CNU makes sure there is joy to be spread. They emphasize the importance of scholarship, but they always make time to ensure that the students are getting into the holiday spirit.
The students were nestled all snug in their study cubbies
While visions of Netflix danced in their heads
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
The students sprung from their desks to see what was the matter
Away to the lawn they flew like a flash
Tore away from the book pages and threw on their coats
The moon was shining with the new fallen snow
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a miniature frozen wonderland, with Santa and food
With fireworks, so lively and quick
I knew in a moment I was at the perfect school
And everyone shouted and called out carols
As the night flew by
I knew there were still obstacles to be met
So off to the library or McMurran
Where the building was full of helpful study tools
And then, in a twinkling I heard hot chocolate
And free scantrons being handed out
As I studied and turned around,
Down the hallway I heard laughter and cheers
The support spread throughout the students
And I laughed out of joy, in spite of my stress
I winked and saw that I had peers by my side
And soon I had nothing to dread
For my professors sprang to help, because we’re all a team
And away the stress sailed, like a captain
But everyone heard, as they packed their bags after finals,
Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night.
