Annual LINK Cramfest is a success
On December 14, LINK hosted their annual Cramfest event in the Student Center from 2:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. The event serves to help freshmen prepare for their finals by having the upperclassmen LINK leaders tutor them in various subjects.
LINK is a program that gives some upperclassmen the opportunity to help freshmen assimilate into high school and create valuable bonds between peers. Amanda Glerup, one of the LINK Coordinators, comments on the importance of Cramfest in the LINK program.
“I think the coolest thing about Cramfest is that LINK Leaders who don’t necessarily have a penchant for studying or a penchant for tutoring get the opportunity to help a freshman and so I think that’s the big connection between LINK Leaders and freshmen.”
LINK leaders are given study guides for all freshman classes so that they may have access to the best resources while helping freshmen. However, a new addition to Cramfest is the “general studies” table, where freshmen can ask for general study tips from LINK Leaders so that they may practice essential study skills that will help them throughout their high school career. Tiernan Day 18’ comments on the new concept.
“It will teach them better study habits that I wish I had learned as a freshman,” he says.
A large amount of the freshman class came to enjoy snacks and assistance Thursday afternoon, and LINK was excited with the support they were able to provide.by
