Students study for psychology with the help of Megan Garriga, the director of CASA on Thursday.

The Center for Academic Success and Achievement, located on the second floor of the Ritter Library, is hosting Finals Fest, a study and social event on Sunday for students to prepare for their finals and receive any last-minute help they may need.

Tutors, CASA staff and professors will be available for review sessions, presentation support and academic coaching. The event will also include snacks, door prizes and other ways for students to socialize.

Finals Fest began in Fall 2015 as a way to support math and statistics classes but was expanded to more courses in the spring to support students in the final push of the semester. Although it was on hiatus during the pandemic, it relaunched last semester and was renamed, resulting in positive feedback from students, said Megan Garriga, the director of CASA.

Garriga and Julia Christman, associate director for tutoring and student learning programs, said that students are looking forward to this event, especially the addition of faculty members.

“Having a review session with the person who wrote the test and is grading the test is really invaluable,” Garriga said.

Isabella Doyle, senior communication studies student said she is excited that CASA is providing times and programs dedicated to students during finals week.

“During this busy time, it’s important for us to stick together and find help when we need it,” Doyle said.

Doyle also said that it will be a nice opportunity to see her classmates and enjoy snacks before the semester ends.

Christman said that learning is often thought of as an independent task, but that in reality it requires collaboration. She said that asking for help is normal and group help such as study groups, tutoring and academic coaching should be a regular component of a student’s studies.

“One of our big goals overall is to make learning events and learning with other people more part of the culture of BW,” Christman said.

Finals Fest will take place on Sunday from 12-5 p.m. A specific schedule of events and review sessions can be found here: https://jacketconnect.bw.edu/casa/rsvp_boot?id=2137035
