Hello #DHTLC,

This semester surely flew by! Congratulations! You made it through your first semester here at Dominguez Hills,  we just have finals to prepare for then we can enjoy our winter break. We hope you had a great first semester experience. Hopefully you met great people, joined clubs and are eager to come back in Spring. If you did not have the opportunity to join anything do not worry you have upcoming semesters to get involved. You should feel very proud of yourselves. We are sure many of you have to juggle work, family and school. Being able to keep up with everything is a  great accomplishment. We hope winter break helps you refuel and prepare for Spring semester. Before we think about next semester keep in mind to make sure to get enough sleep as you prepare for finals, ask for help if you need it and join us for a snack at Welch Hall (details below).This month we do not have many events happening on campus since the semester is coming to an end.
