At UIndy, Finals Week comes with perks

Leave it to UIndy to make Finals Week fun.

Winter Break begins next week for students, but first they must survive this week’s gauntlet of semester-ending exams and project deadlines.

Never fear, however. Tonight brings the cherished Greyhound tradition of  Midnight Breakfast, with faculty, staff and even top administrators volunteering in the Schwitzer Student Center dining room to serve hearty meals to bleary-eyed scholars starting at 11:59 p.m. The meal follows a full evening of Campus Program Board-sponsored activities in the Schwitzer atrium that include:

  • The Residence Hall Association Prize Giveaway, 8-11:30 p.m., with raffle prizes including a North Face jacket, a Nutribullet, a Fitbit, a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 4 and Perfect North Slopes ski passes. Proceeds support the nonprofit Exodus Refugee organization.
  • Novelty Photo Wreathes, 7:30-11:30 p.m.
  • Singer Matt Beilis, 8-9 p.m.
  • Karaoke, 9-11 p.m.

In nearby UIndy Hall A from 9 to 11 p.m., Indianapolis Student Government and the PAWS animal welfare student organization will host Petting Puppies, a furry and healthy way to relieve stress.

From 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in Stierwalt Alumni House, the UIndy Alumni Association will host its annual Dessert Diversion, a study break featuring free cheesecake, assorted desserts, hot chocolate, apple cider and a UIndy tree ornament for each visitor. This year’s DD also is open to alumni and their families, with activities including cookie decorating and photos with Santa.

And when it’s time to get back to studying, Krannert Memorial Library will offer 24-hour service, staying open continuously from this morning through 6 p.m. Friday.
