There was a significant improvement in academics in the Hall in general for the June exams compared to last year’s November exams. This was most probably due to residence and dining hall study venues, good Hall and Res Academic Reps, res library study visits, Warden one on one discussions with students regarding academics, outlining the importance of good academic results, recognition, academic support volunteers, etc.
