Creating outlines, catching up on reading and reviewing a semester’s worth of notes. Yep, it sounds like Finals Week is upon us! And here in Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) we also know that studying is no easy task. That’s why we want to share opportunities you can use throughout the day to help you conquer the next two weeks.
