Study Hours Continue at the UHP

4 May

It feels like finals season is just beginning, and you’ve got a mountain of work to face down.  That does not sound like fun.  But, at least you’ve got the opportunity to do work in the UHP town house in Foggy Bottom!  You’re stressed enough as it is without needing to fight for space or making endless Starbucks runs.  That’s why we’ve got space, coffee, and snacks ready for you in the UHP town house!

Just check the complete schedule for when our doors are open, stick to it, and you’ll get it all done!

Also, here’s some motivation to keep you going:

Study Hours in the UHP

Here's one of the more horrifying conceptions of "brain food" that we could find.

Here’s one of the more horrifying conceptions of “brain food” that we could find.

Avoid the crowded rooms in Gelman, the noise of your roommates, and the distractions of the bustling world during finals season.  Starting Thursday, Honors students can study in the UHP town house in Foggy Bottom!

Students use the upstairs Club Room optionally as a group study, while the basement is always quiet study.  And don’t forget — studying makes you hungry, so we’ll provide plenty of brain food (snacks and coffee) to help you power through!

Most weekdays it’s 9am-10pm, weekends 12pm-10pm with only the following exceptions:  Continue reading

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.

We're just shocked this photo actually exists.

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.
