Week review

The exams have started which means we have a few less activities than normal. Of course we did continue the Study supports with Program Correctness. We also had the very cool looking Blacklight Neon Party this Wednesday. I already saw some pictures and they're really looking awesome. I hope everybody has as much fun as it looked, because I sadly couldn't be there due to exams.
