Real Ukrainians

By VOLODYMYR KRAVCHUK - December 4 2023
Real Ukrainians
Сміливі, як українці.
Незламні, як українці.
Терплячі, як українці.
Мудрі, як українці.

Турботливі і відважні,
Бо воля із крил свободи,
Безмежні і обережні,
Величні своїм народом.

Сильні, як українці.
Нескорені й непокірні.
В світі не наодинці.
Люблячі. Чесні. Вірні.

Будьте, як українці.
Вічні і неосяжні.
Будьте, як українці…
Справжні.
Brave, like Ukrainians strong and true,
Indomitable, like Ukrainians do,
Patient, as Ukrainians wear,
Wise, like Ukrainians, beyond compare.

Caring and valiant, their spirits ignite,
For freedom’s wings in their flight,
Boundless and cautious, they stand tall,
Majestic with their people, united overall.

Strong, like Ukrainians, fierce and bold,
Unyielding, with a spirit untold,
In the world, they’re never alone,
Loving, honest, and faithful to the bone.

Be like Ukrainians, let your light shine,
Eternal and unreachable, divine,
True to yourself, in every deal.
Be like Ukrainians, grand and real!

Thinking about Exams

By MINA WONG -
May 17 2024

Some colleagues and I find exams to be stressful experiences for college students who usually cram for them. Given viable options to traditional midterm and final exams, we want to try other learning components for the same marks. We’ve shared with each other reasons for choosing learning over testing. Over time, we’ve also seen administration’s interest in making exams optional.
