The Morning Digest: Study Slam and National Drinking (Water) Week
Better than a cup of coffee, the Morning Digest will provide you with what you need to be prepared for the day: a daily round-up of links, local news, and important events on campus and around D.C.
To masticate today:
- Hit the books: Tonight, OCAF will be hosting the Hoya Saxa Study Slam at Sellinger Lounge at 11 p.m. There will be free pizza and candy. There will also be coffee to remind you that you still need to study, and that this isn’t a middle school sleepover.
- The Postal Service: Georgetown students can now use PostYourBook to buy and sell textbooks to each other. It is a free service where you post the textbooks you still own from past classes, and you can contact students who have the books you want. This will hopefully help cut down your costs, although Vox is definitely going to miss scouring Facebook GAAP groups for textbooks.
What to look out for:
- Drink up: It’s National Drinking Water Week! This week of hearty celebration serves to remind us of the “essential role drinking water plays in our daily lives.” There are going to be various school events and festivals to increase awareness about the importance of water conservation and recycling.
- Buck up: In another reminder that D.C. is neither a swing nor a state, President Barack Obama delivered the commencement address at The Ohio State University last night. He spoke at length about the unique qualities of American citizenship, and took the opportunity to slip in a few jabs at Wall Street and Congress—all in all, a rollicking good time.
