What's in the CUE this week at Ohio U.


Can you believe that there are only two weeks of classes left in this semester? Neither can we! These past few months have flown by, and winter break will be here before we know it. But first we all have to make it through final exams.

Students, now is the perfect time to start prepping for exams so that finals week is as stress free as humanly possible. Be sure to take advantage of all of the resources that are here to help, like the Academic Advancement Center on the second floor of Alden Library. From tutoring to writing help, they offer something to help every student succeed!

But the present has lots of opportunities for entertainment and education so here are a few week 14 highlights from the official OHIO Calendar of University Events:
