Welcome to the most intense week of the school semester, finals. This is where the stress starts to set in, sleepless nights, anxiety, about three mental breakdowns and more intake of coffee than food.

After a week of putting your mind and body through so much, it’s only right that you celebrate. As our luck has it, the perfect way to unwind is right on campus, the DH sports lounge, in the Loker Student Union.

Art Paz, a senior majoring in business administration with an emphasis in sports/entertainment/hospitality management has been working at DH sports lounge since winter 2012.

“During finals week it is completely dead, like today and the last day and a half is the busiest,” said Paz. “[The] majority of students just finished finals and want to come here and celebrate.”

Arantza Pelayo, also a senior majoring in business administration, with an emphasis in sports/entertainment/hospitality management, has been working at DH sports lounge since spring 2015.

“We notice now that projects are being done with and papers are over with, people will come in and celebrate,” said Pelayo. “Students will say, ‘oh, I just had a final, I need a beer.’”

Paz and Pelayo are also students going through a hectic workweek and school schedule celebrate the same way any of us would after finals week, with a drink.

“We celebrate like everybody else,” said Paz. “We drink a little and sometimes we will drink here”

Pelayo emphasized that the DH lounge is the perfect place to not only unwind, but catch up with friends.

“Well honestly we’re here all the time whether we are working or not working,” said Pelayo. “ All of our friends will ask ‘where are you?‘, or ‘where are you going after? Let’s meet at the bar.’”

According to Pelayo and Paz, the DH sports lounge is definitely the place to be at after finals week.
