Study Break

The Office of Residence Life and DU CARES will again sponsor the “Original Study Break” for the first time in the newly renovated Hogan Dining Center.

So while the venue looks different, we will continue with traditions that make this the biggest study break on campus.  It will be held on Friday, December 14 from 9 p.m. until midnight.  Again this semester, we have faculty and staff from across campus living the mission of serving God by serving students.  This term they will serve breakfast foods, in addition to the standard fun and root beer floats that they serve twice a year.  And as always, we will have chair massages, bingo, door prizes, crafts, pictures with friends….and fun, frolic and merriment.
