Plan ahead for Saturday finals if you take the DTA to campus! Please check the bus schedules because the Saturday schedule may be different from the Monday-Friday schedule.
This semester Student Association is hosting its annual Late Night Library outside the library from midnight to 1:00am.
There will be healthy choice food options and drinks that are FREE to all UMD students on these dates:
Friday, December 16th
Sunday, December 18th
Monday, December 19th
There will be music playing, and members of Student Association scattered all around to answer any questions students may have. Hurry down fast though, because the food always goes quickly!
Library hours are extended and the complete schedule is posted online.
The Glen Avon church community is opening its doors to hundreds of students for the finals week on December 16-20. With the library getting overwhelmed with students needing their own study spots, places to study are needed.
Meals will also be provided to students as well. Many don't get proper nutrition during finals week. Students often skip meals because they "don't have time" to make a meal on their own. At Glen Avon, two square meals and snacks will be provided to students at a suggested donation of $3-5. Church members are also taking time out of their busy holiday season to make fresh rolls and treats for the students.
Energy drinks will be available for a very cheap price for students to take on the road with them. Group study rooms are also available with wireless internet.
This event is being sponsored by Tau Kappa Epsilon, Gamma Sigma Sigma, Student Association, and SuperOne. For more information check out the Facebook event page "STUDY FOR FINALS AT GLEN AVON -- FREE FOOD!"or email Andy Grengs, firstname.lastname@example.org

OIT is pleased to announce that all University of Minnesota students enrolled in at least one credit are now eligible to purchase a one year MATLAB license. MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran. It is used primarily by Computer Science students. Qualifying CSE & CFANS students will continue to have access to a license free of charge through their college.
To learn more about MATLAB and see it in action, visit the MATLAB site.
To purchase the software at the discounted student rate, visit the U of M MATLAB Software UTools page.
