Volunteer sought for Tuesday's Finals Finish

Dec. 6, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University will be offering a mini version of its popular Finals Finish program from 6 to 11 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, in the Student Recreation Center to help harried students get through their fall final exams.

For the past 10 years, Finals Finish has been held near the end of each spring semester during the first two days of final exam week.

The free event gives students a chance to rest, relax and revive so they can stay focused on doing well on their semester-end tests and projects. It also highlights the accomplishments of graduating seniors and involves the entire campus community in the exciting close of another semester.

The spring event has been so successful that WMU is now offering its first fall Finals Finish. Several activities have been planned, including chair massages offered by the Kalamazoo Center for the Healing Arts and inflatable games such as the Purple People Eater obstacle course and Dominator Dome.

The Student Recreation Center also will offer a computer lab, study rooms, music, aerobics classes and giveaways. The giveaways will include lunch with Interim WMU President Diether H. Haenicke and two tickets to watch the Broncos play in the inaugural International Bowl, which will be held noon Saturday, Jan. 6, in Toronto.

Students attending Finals Finish may enter the giveaway drawings each time they participate in selected activities. The drawings will be held at 10:30 p.m. Students need only their WMU IDs to gain entry to Finals Finish.

Volunteers are needed to assist with the fall event. For more information or to volunteer, contact Amy Seth, director of University Recreation, at amy.seth@wmich.edu or (269) 387-3759.
