Today, SHADs at UNB spent the majority of their day preparing tomorrow’s upcoming Open Day. The day started off relatively early at 8:30 am, when all 79 SHADs split up into their various Open Day committees and got to work. Some of these committees include setting up the decorations, planning for the banquet, and helping with the technical aspects of the day.
After lunch, the group headed over to the Student Union Building to take a big group picture, where we all aligned ourselves on the grass in order to spell out the word SHAD. This was followed by a few more hours of Open Day planning and a dress rehearsal for the Variety Show until supper.
The SHADs then proceeded down the hill to practice our group singing act at Dineen Auditorium. While we were there, we were given a lecture by Tim Andrew, who entertained us with his wacky and creative theories of how the dinosaurs really went extinct. We headed back to the residence to yet again make our final preparations for Open Day and polish up the EP posters that we had been working hard on for the last couple of days.
Overall, the SHADs at UNB had a relaxing and stress-free day in contrast with the few days prior working on EP. We worked hard for the big event coming up tomorrow and hope to make a lasting impression on our guests.
For me personally, I had a great time here at SHAD. As I enter these last few days at UNB, I’ve come to realize that this month really has been the longest shortest month of my life.
