Weekly Preview: December 5-9

It's the last week of classes!  You'll notice that the number of academic activities & events offered has dwindled in these last weeks of the semester.  The assumption is that students are focusing on their studies and not spending a lot of time investigating other opportunities.  Watch, however, for end-of-the-semester showcases of student work, be it in dance, music, art, or writing!

The last R1 (Tier 1) Basic Math Skills Exemption Test of the semester will be on Monday, December 5 at 6:30pm in Marcus 131.  A student ID and a #2 pencil are required. A calculator is recommended. There is no limit on the number of times a student may take this test.

The 2011 UMass Innovation Challenge Executive Summary and Elevator Pitch Competition will be held on Wednesday, December 7, starting at 3:30 pm in the Campus Center, 10th Floor. Watch twelve student teams pitch their business ideas and compete for a portion of the $10,000 in prize money to be awarded that evening by the judging panel. The event is free and open to the public, no reservations are required. Refreshments will be served.

The last day of classes for the Fall 2011 Semester is Friday, December 9.

Saturday, December 10 through Sunday, December 11: Reading Period.

Monday, December 12 through Saturday, December 17: Final Exams.

Monday, December 19: Snow Day for December 17 exams; semester ends.
