This Tuesday at 11:15 a.m., Colgate’s annual awards convocation will take place in Memorial Chapel. During this ceremony, some of Colgate’s top-performing students will be recognized for their academic achievement.

Honors such as the prestigious 1819 award and national fellowships will be presented by faculty and senior administrators. To help recognize these students for their outstanding endeavors, be sure to stop by the Chapel! If you can’t attend, watch the ceremony live.

With final exams coming up, many students are beginning to sweat. Beat the stress with cookie study breaks hosted by the Shaw Wellness Institute throughout the week. Stop by Chapel House between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Friday to enjoy some peace, quiet, and cookies.

Don’t let stress get the best of you this term; be sure to indulge in some well-deserved tranquility and relaxation!

On Thursday, head over to Hamilton Movie Theater to for a screening of Cesar Chavez at 10 p.m., presented by the Latin American Student Organization.

This stunning film is one you won’t want to miss, so be sure to grab some friends and head downtown for a study break!
