Sterling College is working to alleviate the stresses of finals weeks with different activities and accommodations presented by on-campus organizations.
Sterling College’s Student Government Association plans study snacks and events to help students’ study in a fun, less-stressful environment.
“We’re all starving college students, you know, and so we need food,” SGA President Adam Moore said.
But there’s more to it.
“And it provides a good break from studying because it can get tiring,” Moor said. “So, having something to go to that’s quick, easy and gives us food, a nice break for students.”
On Dec. 8, the Methodist Church will be serving loaded nachos.
On Dec. 9, Campus Activities Board will be doing the traditional pan bread night.
SGA will oversee Taco Tuesday on Dec. 10, and the final night will be Wendy’s Wednesday on Dec. 11, organized by Student Senate.
All events will take place at 9 p.m. in Cornerstone.
Organizing and overseeing all these special events during finals week can be very stressful.
However, SGA has found a way to alleviate some of the responsibilities.
“SGA didn’t want to be in charge of two days because that’s a lot,” Moore said. “So, we asked a local church, and they got back to us within a day. They decided to do nachos because that’s what was easiest for them.”
Sterling College’s Mabee Library also tries to accommodate students by adjusting their hours during finals week to give students ample study time.
According to library director Laurel Watney, library hours will be extending their library hours Wednesday, Dec. 4 through Thursday, Dec. 12.
For specific hours, please contact the library staff.
