Arkansas Union Provides Finals Study Rooms
The Arkansas Union is once again providing study rooms for the fall finals period. Beginning Friday, Dec. 7, and continuing through finals week, rooms 503 and 504 in the Arkansas Union are dedicated as 24-hour access, open study spaces. The rooms feature an assortment of tables and chairs, beanbag seating, whiteboards, and dozens of extra electrical outlets. The rooms are available for silent study, group work, or a short study break.
Additionally, the entirety of the Arkansas Union will switch to 24/7 operations on Dead Day, meaning that all public areas, open lounges, and hallways will be available for students to study. This includes the new area in the front of the Union Food Court, as well as the new food court study rooms 315 and 316.
In addition to study spaces, Arkansas Union staff will periodically provide coffee, snacks and other refreshments in room 503. Stay tuned to @ArkansasUnion on Twitter to see when those snacks and drinks are restocked.
