5 Study Breaks To Take During Finals Week

Because finals should be more than just a long date with the library.

5 Study Breaks To Take During Finals Week

Finals week can be an extremely stressful week for students. Taking breaks from loooooongggg dates with Howie T., however, may help make designated study time more productive and efficient. Here are some fun ways to relax, de-stress, and enjoy yourself in the midst of the craziness of finals.

1. Check out a chef cooking demonstration, December 8th-23rd.

Stress eating is a very real thing. So why not take out your finals stress by watching famous chefs create delicious food? Tune in to WWL-TV to catch these televised demonstrations each morning between 8 and 9 am- the perfect pre-library treat! Get the schedule here.

2. Take a holiday tour of New Orleans Homes, December 10th and 11th.

Pricey at $40 for advance tickets, but if you're just as eager as I am to see some elaborate Christmas decorations in gorgeous New Orleans homes, it's totally worth it. It's great study motivation, too, because these homes are going to inspire you to want to do big things with your life. Get more ticket information here.

3. Go to the Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors, December 13th.

After a long day of studying, why not catch a basketball game? Get your tickets to this 7 pm game here.

4. Nola Christmasfest, December 16-30th.

Bring out your inner child with activities like ice skating, carnival rides, a carousel, and even Santa himself! Get in on the festivities here.

5. Running of the Santas, December 17th.

This festival and pub crawl may not be the most effective study break, but it sure does sound fun. Get tickets to dress up like Santa and get a little silly here.

See, there is more to finals week than just endless library time. Happy studying, and good luck!

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
