Beaver's Center for Academic Achievement to host 'all-nighter'

In preparation for final exams, the Penn State Beaver Center for Academic Achievement (CAA) will host an “all-nighter” for students Thursday, April 24. The Night Owl Pizza Party Study Event will begin at 6 p.m. in 105 Ross Administration Building and will conclude when the last student leaves or by 8 a.m., whichever comes first. This study session is the second “all-nighter” held this semester. A highly-successful pre-midterm study event was also held in February.

The CAA will provide study supplies and refreshments for all students, along with a study break area where students can pause to take a quick nap or watch a video. During February’s event, Jill Tress, CAA coordinator, and two students spent the entire night working in the Ross Administration Building.

“It was a lot of fun, but the students were there to study,” Tress said. “The companionship and snacks were just an added attraction. The response was so positive that we may make this a regular event at midterms and finals every semester.”

Senior psychology major Jessica Davis said it was “a surprisingly fun way to be productive.” For more information, contact Tress at or 724-773-3867.
