As we approach the spring semester’s grand finale, with final RSO meetings and bouncy house-laden end-of-the-year events, it’s really hard to feel alone, especially with everyone having the shared experiences of preparing for finals while trying to conclude things on a fun note.

Because being on-campus all spring long is new for so many students, here are some ways to really take advantage of the spring semester no matter your year. Continue reading
