Bourns Engineering Day Commitee Written by Odalys Garau The Bourns Engineering Day committee has already met several times to begin the planning for SWE’s biggest outreach event of the year. We have a lot of freshman that are coming to the meetings and bringing their great ideas. We should see some fun, unique and exciting new activities this spring. Also, we are almost done finalizing a GREAT logo and slogan for this year’s Mechanical and Electrical engineering themed event. While we have been hard at work for the last 4 weeks, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done during the Winter quarter. It’s not too late to volunteer if you’re interested. We will be sending out a poll to determine committee meeting times for next quarter.


Finals Helpline Written by Rachel Law Brace yourselves – Finals are coming. Buckle down at the libraries and study jams held by UCR’s clubs and colleges. UCR’s libraries will be holding extended hours during finals and prefinals, with the Raymond L. Orbach Science Library even staying open all 24 hours. For a complete time schedule of UCR’s libraries, refer to this pdf. If you need a coffee break, the Starbucks off of Blaine & Iowa has a 24/7 drive-thru. Clubs and UCR will also be hosting study sessions for students in need of help. Tau Beta Phi always has study jams specialized for engineers every other Wednesday from 4-6pm at Winston Chung 103. UCR (ENSURE) will be treating students to tutors and pizza at two study jams this quarter, scheduled for December 5 from 2-3pm and December 6 from 3-4pm both at Winston Chung 103. These sessions from ENSURE are still tentative, so keep your eyes open for a time change in your email! As always, the Academic Resource Center has drop-in tutoring, more study tips, and supplemental instruction sessions. Although the libraries are open for much longer hours and there are various study jams going on, don’t overexert and exhaust yourself before your final!
