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
Estimated attendance of 100+
