Dec. 5: Reading Day Study Break

Refresh during finals with UD Student Alumni Ambassadors


8:49 a.m., Dec. 2, 2013--As the end of the semester closes in, many students are overloaded with projects, exams and papers. To help alleviate some of that frenzy, the University of Delaware Student Alumni Ambassadors (UDSAA) will host the Reading Day Study Break on Thursday, Dec. 5, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Students can stop by the Perkins Student Center Lobby between midday study sessions for snacks, coffee and juice. They will also be encouraged to take an optional survey about their involvement with the UD Bucket List. Students may also take the survey online at any time.
