Vincennes University baseball team will be playing Louisville Elite this Saturday, Oct. 4. The game will be held at Vincennes University's baseball field. The game will start at 4 p.m.



Midterms are from Oct. 6 to 10.

Midterm Exams are a very important time of every semester. For most classes a midterm is a large part of your final grade. Most midterms will be over what you’ve learned in the first half of your class.

“I think it’s crunch time when it comes to studying and everyone should take it seriously," Becca Garrison said about her experience with midterms.

She also said, “It’s important to make sure you don’t get to stressed out or you’ll do badly. So just stay calm and stay on top of your studying.
