Study Break and Exam Schedule Event Policy

Study Break and Exam Schedule Event Policy:
Student groups are not allowed to host events after the last day of classes each semester. This ensures a commitment to our academic partners as we support a quiet and studious environment during exams. However groups may host a Study Break. Study Breaks are intended to provide an alternative to events, but not pose a significant distraction to campus.    A study break will comply with all of the following:  1. The activity must be open only to group members 2. The activity must last no longer than 2 hours 3. The activity must not include any of the following criteria that would trigger event registration

Outdoor recreation events (5Ks, races, field days, etc.)   Appropriate Examples: Pizza Parties, Group Breakfasts, Regular Meetings, etc.  Inappropriate Examples: DJ on the Plaza, Section Parties, Speakers and Special Guests, etc.    The Study Break Quiz   If you are in doubt and unsure if you are hosting an event or a Study Break please answer the following questions:
