Thanks for the Great Year!

Written By: Brooke Dalton

There is a bittersweet feeling among us all around this time of year. Everyone is excited to be finishing up courses for a mental break, but it also might mean leaving all our university friends for four months.

Get AMP(e)D will be going on a summer hiatus, but don’t worry–we’ll be back again in September to bring you more diverse student content.

Looking back, it was a great year to be in AMPD; all of our peers are so talented! What a great community we’ve created and fostered. As one last hurra to celebrate our wonderful community, why not come to Winters Formal!

We hope to see you there and if we don’t, see you next year! Have a great summer!
