University Recreation to Host Study Hall Open to All Students

University Recreation will offer an alternative location for students to study during finals week. From Sunday, Dec. 10, through Tuesday, Dec. 12, from 5-10 p.m. in HPER 220, students may utilize a quiet space with large tables, free snacks and adult coloring while they study.

This is the second semester that UREC will host this space for students to study.

"We want to provide students across campus with an option for a change in environment as they study for finals," said Abby Blumberg, graduate assistant of student staff development.

"We also hope that students would utilize open recreation during this time to help increase their energy levels and alleviate stress during finals week."

No registration is required for this event.
