Watch for ‘10 Things to Know this Week’ every Monday during the spring and fall semesters. The list of events and opportunities is compiled through submissions to www.clarion.edu/coverage. To be included, items must be pertinent to all students.
Did you (and your clock) spring forward?
Are you feeling a bit behind today? Does it seem as if your weekend was shorter than usual? Are you ordering your coffee in the five-gallon bucket size? It's all thanks to Daylight Savings Time, which began at 2 a.m. Sunday. If you (and your clock) didn't already spring ahead by an hour, there's no time like the present!
