To give students the chance to destress from finals for a few hours, University Programing Board members are hosting their bi-annual Finals Frenzy in the Clark Student Center and one in the Legacy Multipurpose Room on Dec. 7  from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The 22 events will focus around the theme “Fly away with MSU” because, according to UPB Entertainment Chair Julia Lucas, education junior it adds variety compared to the past “clichéd” Winter Wonderland themes.

“You should expect to be taken on a trip,” Lucas said. “You’re going to fly away with us. We didn’t want to stick with the ‘Winter Wonderland’ because finals is during that time of year. We wanted to do something different.”

The event allows students to decompress from finals, and Sandra Cruz, biology and art junior, said she likes going to the different events with friends, she especially likes going to the caricature events.

“They offer to help you forget a little bit about finals for a split second,” Cruz said. “It’s signifying that the semester is almost over.”

Finals Frenzy is open to all students and faculty, and although she hasn’t attended the event, Shaniece Dutch, sociology senior, said she’s heard it’s an opportunity for students come and have fun to relieve stress about finals and “beat the piñata.”

Dutch said she has never attended a Finals Frenzy and never plans on attending one because she is too busy and is trying to focus on her classes trying to make sure everything is settled.

“Sometimes [finals] can be hell especially if you haven’t been doing good in the class,” Dutch said.”For those who want to interact in activities and want to clear their head, it’s good.”
