Scholarship


WELCOME BACK OYFA!

 
Finals are upon us but don't worry! Scholarship has rooms booked in Clark just for you!!
 
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put your name down if you will be using a room, not just so we can account for space but also to give other people a chance to use the room if no one is currently using it!
 
NOTE: if a room DOES NOT have any names down by the time our reservation starts, we will be cancelling our reservation to allow other people to use the rooms for finals since it's only fair!
 
Check this spreadsheet for which rooms are available for you all to study in: https://docs.google.com/a/virginia.edu/spreadsheets/d/1trMSgeJ_e2R8vQVc0aoxw658occQ2Q0AVIxfUgvgIpk/edit?usp=sharing
