For a 10 day period, before and during finals, the Student Union partners with SARC, SGA, and the UCF Foundation to stay open 24 hours and provide students with a space to prepare for exams. This year, they are also partnering with the VARC to sponsor a Student Veterans study space as well, on the third floor of the Student Union, in room 316 AB.
During Study Union, many events and programs are offered to help students both prepare and relax before their exams.

The VARC will also be open until 19:00 hours on April 22, 23, 24, and 28.

Please take advantage of these oppportunities to study with fellow vets.
