How Finlandia turns Finals into the Finale

Finals are stressful. It’s a fact that college students have come to know and loathe. Finlandia aims to do finals differently.

We start, with Late Night Breakfast & Tutoring. Students are encouraged to come hang out in the Café, get some breakfast, and get some studying done. All food for the event is prepared and served by staff. This breakfast is well attended, free and fun for everyone involved.

Best thing about Finlandia. ??? https://t.co/B3ds8Jizpp
