READY, SET, GEEK WEEK!

By Mauricio (Mo) Laguan, ASUU deputy chief of staff, and Brittni Strickland, ASUU senior class president

Final papers, tests, presentations and a good amount of stress. All these and more are the characteristics of finals week, but ASUU is excited to bring back the highly anticipated Geek Week to help U students survive.

Other major campus partners will also be participating in Geek Week, including the Writing Center, Business Tutoring, Campus Recreation Services, Chartwells Dining Services (Mom’s Café), the Union Programming Council, ASUU Child Care, the Residence Halls Association and the Campus Store.

ASUU will help hungry students and sooth stressful studies by providing free pizza and therapy dogs every night starting at 7 p.m.

“Providing services for students is Geek Week’s primary purpose” said Aubrey Keeney, ASUU Academic Affairs director. “We are excited to bring back familiar services, as well as some new ones to benefit all who come to the library during finals week.”

Among these new services is free printing for students at the Marriott Library provided by ASUU. Students can pick up a free voucher at the ASUU table at the west entrance on the first floor in the library. The voucher includes 15 pages per student that can be used throughout finals week.

Commuter Services, the Marriott Library and ASUU have also collaborated to provide free parking in the visitor lot on the west end of the library after 6 p.m.

Other activities and services will be provided at various locations on campus. The following is a detailed calendar with activities ASUU and its partners will provide.
