Studying totally sucks, we all know it, but how can you survive it? There’s one way and one way only! Awesome Study Breaks! Here’s 10 study break options to get you by while you’re collecting those A's.
1. A Stroll in the Sun and an Iced Passion Tea Lemonade
Take a quick walk with your roommate and catch up on the gossip and the sun. Being out in the sunshine will improve your mood and if you haven’t tried an iced passion tea lemonaide from Starbucks you really should! It’s like a summer in a glass! Getting a coffee might remind you too much of hitting the books so I suggest this delicious energy packed alternative.
2. Little Bob it up!
Go enjoy a short work out at the Little Bob or try taking a class like Zumba! This will get your energy level up, decrease your stress level, and get you looking hot for summer.
3. Dance Party
I don’t know if anyone is a big dork like me, but this idea stems from the Icarly bit called random dancing. Turn up your favorite tunes (Spice Girls anyone?!?) and just belt it out and dance with your roommates. It might be fun to do this every hour on the hour so you have something to look forward to, some laughs to help you destress, and a timeline to help you prioritize.
1. How was Deltronica founded and where did the idea come from? Deltronica was founded in Spring of 2011 by Seniors AJ DiBiase and Joe Vela. I got involved right around when the club was recognized as an RSO. The idea was to bring campus awareness to the new types of modern electronic music out there, and promote the resurgence of the rave scene. Genres like jamtronica, trance, house, and dubstep are some of the music we strive to introduce people to. Our goal with Deltronica is to bring these acts to campus for shows and festivals, take groups off campus to see shows, and teach students about some of the ways music is created these days. (We just recently had a very successful Ableton Live workshop hosted by DubSpot, a DJ’ing school out of New York City). Another thing we try to do is give local electronic acts a chance to play for a crowd.
2. Can you tell us a little about the idea behind Bass Campus and how it came to be? The founders and I had been tossing around the idea of an outdoor music festival since the birth of Deltronica. Joe and I started planning for it in the winter. Us and our friends have attended lots of music festivals and shows together and we wanted to create that feel on campus. So the model for the festival was very similar to a typical festival you would see now: main stage, silent disco, vendors. All of our events for Deltronica have been free so far so we decided to keep going with that trend. We asked the university for some money and they gave us around $13,000 for the entire event. Between that money and the help of our many cosponsors, we were able to put together a pretty substantial festy.
