Finals week is here, and students are struggling to find open spots at the library to study. Fortunately, ISU’s Diversity Advocacy is offering to help provide extra space.
Study jams will be held from 5 p.m. to midnight on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at the Student Services Building across from the Bone Student Center. Refreshments to snack on will be provided.
“Monday we’re hosting a late night breakfast and that is going to be from 8-10 p.m. in Student Services 375, and that’s pretty much just to kick off finals week [and have students] start finals week on the right foot with a hearty meal,” Ashley Taylor, diversity programming specialist with Diversity Advocacy in the Dean of Student’s Office, said.
“Students tend to love breakfast for dinner, so they’re really just getting their start on the right foot.”
In previous years, Diversity Advocacy provided different food such as chicken, Avanti’s sandwiches, pretzels, granola bars and juices, Taylor explained.
“We’ll have the entire floor,” she added. “All the rooms on the third floor of the Student Services building, so we’ll be in Rooms 314, 304, 376, 375 and then we have a study lounge in our actual office suite, which is Room 387. So all those rooms will be open, we’ll have laptops available for check out, so students can come in and rent out laptops.”
The event is free and available for all students to attend. If students want to rent a laptop, they should bring their Redbird IDs and headphones for music, Taylor explained.
Late night breakfast will include a special treat for students this year.
“For our late night breakfast, actually staff will be serving students so that’s an opportunity just for them to see us in a different light, us as staff members serving breakfast,” Taylor explained. “So we’ll have on our aprons and chef hats and it will be catered by Bob Evans, but we’ll actually be serving the students for that event.”
In hopes to have a heavy turnout, Taylor encourages for students to come and study in a nice, quiet place with refreshments for the first few nights of finals.
