Copeland Hall is pretty hot.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Thursday, Oct. 1, 2015:
Hip-hip, hooray! Cheer this morning, for tomorrow is reading day.
But why? Well, because Ohio University thinks you could use it.
Reading day was designed in early 2014 to give students a day to “catch up on work and rest during the middle of the fall semester,” President McDavis said last fall.
If you’d rather do, err, something other than reading tomorrow, there is an advertisement floating around Twitter for a “Reading Day Rager” at 66 Stewart St. A DJ, kegs and the ever-popular jungle juice will allegedly be supplied.
If you’re looking something a little more sober, Ping Center’s website has a page dedicated to Reading Day activities, but the page was blank as of press time.
Campus recreation’s composite calendar does make mention of some sort of group fitness activity at Ping from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m
