Finals Finish helps students end semester on high note
April 21, 2010
KALAMAZOO--The annual Finals Finish at Western Michigan University will take place from 6 to 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, at venues across campus.
Now in its 14th year, Finals Finish promotes student success by making spring finals week less stressful. The free event helps students relax, refuel and revive so they can stay focused on doing well on their semester-end tests, papers and projects. It also recognizes the achievements of WMU's graduating seniors, and involves the entire campus in closing the semester on a high note.
Some sites participating in the spring 2010 Finals Finish will stay open longer than usual. All sites will provide snacks, with Waldo Library doing so during the first two days of finals week from 10 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Monday and Tuesday, April 26-27.
The Student Recreation Center will again be the main venue, and offer the most non-academic activities for students, including exercise classes, competitive and non-competitive games, music and prize drawings.
Members of the campus and local communities assist in staging Finals Finish. Volunteers are needed to work a two-hour shift from 6 to 8 p.m. and 8 to 10 p.m. All volunteers receive a T-shirt and are assigned to the Student Recreation Center, where they greet and visit with students, serve snacks, monitor the study area, issue recreational and fitness equipment, and help supervise games and other activities.
The spring 2010 Finals Finish is being organized by WMU's Presidential Spirit Committee with support from numerous business sponsors and from University offices, faculty and staff members, retirees and alumni.
