Our View: Finals Frenzy gives students the opportunity to relax, destress and participate in fun activities before finals week starts.
With activities like bingo, massage therapy and graduation cap decorating, Finals Frenzy has become an annual end of the semester tradition. It’s also a time to destress and celebrate the end of the semester with friends before having to study for the upcoming exams. Themed “Frosty Frenzy” this year, the 31st Finals Frenzy is happening Dec. 6 from 6-11 p.m. and is a campus wide thing with multiple events. Ruby Arriaga, coordinator of student activities, said, a group effort between the university programming board, different offices and organizations is what helps put Finals Frenzy together. While most students feel inclined to stay inside to study or prepare for finals or even just stay inside completely to relax or wind down, we believe they should participate in the activities that are offered and celebrate the end of the semester by spending time with their friends before finals week.
These events are hosted by using funds allocated to UPB and what organizations pitch in. All of the events for Finals Frenzy had an estimated cost of 7,000 dollars. With the scale of this and the planning that goes into it, UPB starts planning this event a month and a half in advance for students enjoyment and we think that is very important. This shows that they care about what students want to see and do. The staff wants to see a good turn out and we want everyone to have a good time and relax. Hope to see you there.
