Students will no longer be able to rely on Study Day to cram for finals starting in the
2013-2014 school year. Provost Vice President for Academic and Student Life Marilyn Levine initiated the decision to get rid of Study Day, previously known as Dead Day. Levine sent out a survey roughly two months ago to the student body about whether or not to keep Study Day.

“A lot of the students I talked to never received the survey,” said Allyson
Mundy, ASCWU BOD Vice President for Academic Affairs.

“We do it this way because hospitals require new stuffed animals and we want to make sure they are clean and safe for the kids,” said Maddie Schlesinger, junior film and video studies.
