Also, make sure to follow us on Twitter so you can get our Honors Program updates as well! Let’s make every UHP tweet like a single Christmas light on a giant, glowing tree of sharing and caring.

Super Study Hours Continue in UHP Townhouse

18 Dec

The complete schedule is here.  We’ll have our doors open through the end of the week.  So come by, get your study on, and have a snack!

How To: Study Hours in the UHP

14 Dec

Study hours continue this weekend in the UHP townhouse in Foggy Bottom.  You can find the complete schedule here.

Here’s a few tips on how to win at life, and at studying in the UHP:

People tend to use the club room for group study, and the basement for quiet study. We have no official enforcement of it, so just be courteous to your fellow studiers, especially if you’re in the basement.

There’s probably a more polite way to ask.

Bring a mug for all the coffee and hot chocolate you care to drink.  Did you know that the average college student drinks 5000 gallons of coffee each day during finals?  That’s not true at all, but still, bring a mug.

Make sure to clean up after yourselves. Or we’ll have more mice than a Walt Disney fever dream.

Be hygienic.  Seriously, guys, it’s gross to eat out of the bag.  Here’s the problem with literally shoving your hand into communal food: Your Hand>Bag>Your Mouth>Bag>EVERYONE ELSE’S MOUTHS.  That’s essentially the same thing as Your Hand>Everyone Else’s Mouths.  Visualize that.  Or worse, everyone else’s hands in your mouth.  Visualize that. Gross.  Pour a little out on a napkin or plate.  We’re trying to keep the typhoid outbreaks to a minimum here.
