Finals Week Gets an Upgrade

New Sponsorship Allows Campus Partners to Level Up Student Support

Many on campus already think of Midnight Breakfast as a mainstay during finals, but this year, Georgia Tech Finals Week will give students even more opportunities to take a study break, relax, or let off some steam in a safe and fun way. With support from Invesco QQQ, Student Center Programs Council (SCPC), SMILE, the Campus Recreation Center (CRC), and Tech Dining have partnered for this semester’s Finals Week to provide opportunities for students to take a minute for themselves during a high-stress time of the year. 

Tuesday, December 7 

Finals Week kicks off with Buzz’s Winter Wonderland on the last day of class from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. in W21 Parking Lot (near MRDC). Students can learn how to ice skate, take a tube ride down a snow slide, decorate some winter themed arts, and have a cup of hot cocoa. The first 300 students will get a free Georgia Tech beanie hat!  RSVP on Campus Tickets.

Wednesday, December 8 

On the first reading day, SCPC will host two different events to help students de-stress in between study sessions. From 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., students can come to the Exhibition Hall for Relaxation Station, a chill out and destress event with massage chairs, aromatherapy, wax hands, scented candle-making, and more. That night from 7-10 p.m., SCPC will host a Silent Disco in the Bobby Dodd Club Lounge to let students dance the night and the stress away. Both events will have free giveaways while supplies last, so be sure to reserve your free ticket to Relaxation Station and Silent Disco events on Campus Tickets

Monday, December 13 

This year, SCPC’s Relaxation Fest will feature ways to actively release stress in a safe and fun way, hosted on Tech Green 4-6 p.m. before Midnight Breakfast. Students can smash their stresses (and a plate) through our plate throwing activity, throw an inflatable axe, do some bungee trampoline jumping, and destress in a number of safe and effective ways. Get your ticket on Campus Tickets

From 8 p.m. to midnight that night, SCPC and Tech Dining will bring beloved the finals week tradition of Midnight Breakfast to the Exhibition Hall.  Georgia Tech leadership and administrators will be there to serve eggs, bacon (or beyond meat sausage), potatoes, and grits as students take a late-night study break to fuel their body and mind. Students that have dietary restrictions will be accommodated.  There are limited tickets available, students should RSVP on Campus Tickets. 

Throughout the Week 

For both full weeks of finals beginning Saturday, December 4 – Friday, December 17, the CRC will host free fitness classes for students! Check out the schedule online, make plans to come with a friend, and be sure to RSVP for the class on the CRC’s website.  If you’ve been meaning to check out a fitness class or two at the CRC, this is the week to try it out!
