Take a break from midterms and party! Woodward Basement!

In honor of Social Media Week, we will highlight the benefits of Twitter!

Come to this great event where you get to do an artistic scavenger hunt!

1,700 college students die each year as a result of alcohol misuse. The average college student drinks 3 times more during spring break than they would during a normal weekend. Students who usually abstain from drinking often drink during spring break 50% of all emergency trauma cases had alcohol in the picture. Think about it like this, how much fun will the night really be if you feel sick after & can’t remember what you did?

Helpful places Are midterms starting to get the best of you? Well there are plenty of places around campus that are meant to help, and the best part, their services are free!

Midterm Study Tips

There are many simple things that can be done to study more efficiently. Making an outline of the topics that you will need to know is a great place to start. If writing out flashcards does not work for you, try free online flashcards from study websites such as Study Blue. Be sure to take a 10-minute break every hour. Reward yourself with a treat like a Hershey Kiss every time you finish a section. And most importantly, be sure to sleep!




New Things Around Campus Things seem to be constantly changing around the BSU campus. The Conant Science Building to be completed in August 2012! The new parking garage for commuters is now fully functional. They are beginning construction on the new residence hall. And starting next fall, there will be upperclassman RLC’s in Scott Hall. It will begin with a Social Justice RLC! If you are interested in living in the RLC, simply check off the box on your housing selection form! Be in store for a lot of structural changes around the BSU campus by next fall.
