Reading Days.  Much to our dismay, the weight of projects, presentations, and finals can put a major damper on the Holiday Season.  Many of us even have to stay on campus until December 22!  But don’t fear.  We have your complete guide to surviving your finals without sacrificing the warm and fuzzy of the holidays.  From lighted boat festivals to free cookies, there will be TONS of opportunities to get hyped up on holly jolly.  Wake up and smell the mistletoe!
