Group presentations, chapter tests, and final exams stand in the way of a much-needed break for all Loras students. However, Loras has a few helpful events planned to help everyone get through their exams.
This past week, a few events were held to help students stay stress-free as finals approached. On Tuesday, students had the opportunity to gather in the Ballrooms and play with puppies for a few hours. This is a day that is looked forward to every semester because it helps to ease stress and spend a few hours relaxing. Tonight, Thursday, is another de-stress day for students. Massages, sponsored by the Loras Athletic Training Club and Sophomore Year Experience, will be held in the Arizona Room for all students. There will also be more massages on the A-Level of Binz Hall for students who live there.
During finals week, the library will continue to be one of the main places on campus that does additional accommodating for students. With extended hours from 7:45 a.m. until 1 a.m., the library is looking to give any student the opportunity to finish a paper or stay up late studying for an exam.
Along with studying for finals, every college student needs a snack to get through the late nights. This is where Loras’ dining services come into play. Just like in the years past, The Cafe will be open for “Late Night” from 10 p.m. until 12 a.m. from Sunday, May 15, until Wednesday, May 18. There will be mini calzones, a nacho bar, and beverages for everyone who comes through the door. This tradition has been fairly successful at Loras, with students lining up at the register 15 minutes before it starts, so get there early!
There may be more final exam week events in store, so be sure to keep an eye on your email as more finals week announcements will be coming out as the exams get closer.
