May the luck of the Irish be with you

“This year students celebrated St. Patrick’s Day a wee bit late, but only to ensure the most students could participate. Fun was had by all; they really seemed to have a ball.”

Sadly, that is the best rhyming we can come up with, but fortunately the students at Stenberg College do have rhyming skills. Once again the Marketing department held the annual Student Limerick contest, encouraging students to come up with their best rhyme for a chance to win one of two $100 Visa Gift Cards. Nearly 60 lucky limericks were received and voted on by Stenberg staff. The winners were:

Jon D RDPN 0514:

It’s fun being a student some say
Heavy workload, no life and no pay!
When you think that you’re through,
Profs change when stuff’s due,
Come on, who needed sleep anyway?

Entire Class NUC 0115:

Our Teacher teaches us until we are green
At times we think she is so mean
We must say our class is rather fine
Learning medicine takes so much time
The amount of terminology is extreme.

Spirit Winners: Tyler M., Gita A., Rosalee L., Amanda M., Ashley S., Tamara B., Jeffrey W., Amara T, and Ambika S

Everyone who entered received a $5 Tim Hortons gift card for their participation.


Throughout the day snacks were served and bottled water was available for students. Students showing off their St. Patrick’s Day spirit had the opportunity to win one of nine $25 Starbucks gift cards. Thank you to all the students who participated in the campus life event and entered the limerick contest!
