Today is the day. Today is my day. Today, I answer the question “How are you?” with a cheery WONDERFUL!
Anyone that has seen me this week knows that it has not been a pretty standard week here at the Universities at Shady Grove. From last week to now there was a full schedule of activities: Student Research Day, Poverty Simulation, Post-Election Campus Forum, YUMpreneurship Showcase, Holiday Bazaar and the Executive Leadership Panel Networking Event. All of which I got to be a part of either in my role as a student or a
s a student employee for the USG Conference and Event Services. And of course, it is also finals week for my program of study. Everything was in full swing, and I loved it, as I love keeping busy.
However, TODAY, my dear readers, why am I wonderful? I am glad you asked. Today, my classmates and I, in the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s Construction Management Program are taking our final exam for this Fall 2016 semester! And we could not be happier.
Everyone I run into is hitting the books pretty hard. Even for those students whose exams are next week, it is still a very stressful time right now. Thankfully USG is making efforts to help ease that stress by allowing students to relax by receiving massages or by the healing power of dogs in the De- Stress Lounge.
In addition, I am happy to extend a warm invitation to you for an event that I believe can help ease that stress, while contributing to a worthy cause (killing two birds with one stone #winning). The USG Student Council is proudly hosting a Karaoke Night today, Thursday 8th December (aka Thirsty Thursday). As part of the council’s efforts to raise much-needed funds for the USG Involvement Scholarship Fund.
The amazing venue Quench Restaurant & Bar that has an unbeatable happy hour menu of food and beverages during the event time has generously agreed to donate 10% of the proceeds to the scholarship fund. This 10% will be in lieu of the 10% discount offered with your USG ID card, but no worries, the Happy Hour prices are already dirt cheap!
I will be there from 5pm sharp and hope to see you there! Don’t miss this opportunity to relax, have fun and as Elsa says “ Let it go”, all while supporting the USG Involvement Scholarship Fund.
