The residents of townhouse 135 held an event on Jan. 30 in the cafeteria lounge to study for midterms.
The theme of 135 is UBalance, which deals with managing time between school, work and other activities.
The event was for all students and the highlight of the night was the free Buffalo chicken dip.
“The whole point of this was to help bring the student body together, and to prepare for the exams along with scheduling their classes,” Sophia Charles, student residence assistant, said.
Charles is majoring in entrepreneurship and small business.
Fifty to 60 students showed up. Several people noted that it was good for the students to come study for different types of classes.
The students involved were Sophia Charles, Ashanti Conover, Nikolas Hollomon, Kyrin (KEYE-rin) Lloyd and the authors.
Charles, who decided to do a study hall, really did well with helping students with scheduling and homework.
A 2.0 GPA is required for students to live in a themed house. The students must participate in one event related to the theme of the house, and have an article presented in Student Central.
“I feel like this event had a very good vibe to it. It really helped bring students together and they all enjoyed some good food,” said Lloyd, a business administration major.
Ian Kemmerer, a corporate communication major, really enjoyed the food.
“I was really blown away by how much the themed house members put into this activity,” he said. “I hope there is another event like this.”
Another themed house, UCare, townhouse 147, focuses on community issues, and will hold a clothing drive soon during which members will set up boxes for clothing donations.
