“Just to allow the students to unwind and relax after working hard. A chance to recharge and rest up, get rest to finish up the rest of the semester.”

-Jasmin Morgan, sophomore – exercise science major

“For me, it’s a big point in the semester. It was nice to recollect my thoughts and prepare for the next six weeks leading up to finals, which gets pretty hectic. … It’s also a nice way to be able to connect with family.”

-Sean Courty, junior – English major, secondary education minor
