The end of the semester is coming up fast, but that doesn’t mean you should spend every last minute stressing over finals! Below are the top four things to do on campus to end the semester right and kick-start a well-deserved break.
1. Take in Some Culture
If your hometown is anything like mine, it is going to seem like a cultural wasteland compared to Philly. Take advantage of all the art galleries, films, and concerts put on just for you at your colleges and get your fill of talent, beauty, and the thought-provoking diversity that comes from living in a city like this.
2. Get Pumped
Basketball season is upon us! Go out and support your favorite teams this December and share in the school spirit that will carry you through the rest of vacation. Don’t have a favorite? The Villanova vs. Temple men’s basketball game should be a sure bet to rile up some emotion this season.
Exercise is a great way to take a break from studying, clear your mind, and boost your spirits. Thankfully, most of your colleges offer access to well-equipped gyms that offer cool classes like yoga (Bryn Mawr does it Tuesdays at 5:15pm). Temple is even opening an Owl Spa for one day to give students some much-appreciated relaxation before finals week.
4. Give Back
We are entering a season of giving, so why not give yourself that warm feeling by reaching out and seeing what you can do for others? Arcadia will fight for human rights with their AmnesTEA and Ursinus has a Giving Tree set up for students to participate, but you can also check around your colleges to see what they are doing to make the season bright.
