The Wesley Center will host a game night to give students a break from studying during Finals Week.
Game night is free of charge and is open to everyone.
It will be hosted from 9 p.m. to midnight May 6 in Watson Lounge in Bishop W. Angie Smith Chapel.
The games also will be accompanied by macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets, queso, chips, and fresh baked cookies.
There will be different kinds of games, including Apples to Apples, Jenga and Uno.
Students also can bring their own games, said Rachel Honaker, psychology senior, who is running the event.
“It’s just a good fun night to unwind and hang out with people, really helps get the stress out of your system,” Honaker said. “Game night has been going on for more years than I have been here. Not sure when it started, but we’re happy to continue the tradition.”
Some students look forward to the event.
“Heck yeah I’ll go,” said Tatum Nelson, music theater. freshman “Add a little Cards Against Humanity in there, and it’ll be a jam.”
Michael Horn, youth ministry junior who also is running the event, said the game night is a good way for people to take a break.
“It gives them time to step away and recover, and to not think about finals and stuff,” Horn said. “If you don’t take a break then you don’t retain as much information.”
The event has been hosted for more than six years.
Only about 15 people came last year and organizers are hoping for more, Horn said.
