As the semester begins to wind down and finals approach, study hard, but study wisely. Don't cram the night before a final, but rather study in chunks in the days leading up to the test. Take breaks, get plenty of rest which means don't drink excessive caffeine, eat right, exercise to relieve anxiety and relax. Form study groups with classmates to review material. Use the Writing Center in Pullen Hall to improve your papers.

The Creative Communications Club is seeking entries from December graduates only  for the Frosty Awards; submit your creative work to Connie Capacchione. Submissions must be in before the last day of finals. For more info, check out the information below.

With live actors playing suspects in a murder case, the audience is left to play detectives who try to figure out the "murder mystery" based on clues that are provided to them by a mediator and based on interactions and conversations they have with the characters. While all this is going on everyone is fed a 3 course meal and enjoys the time they are spending with their friends and peers. At the end of the show, everyone who is participating gets to turn in a guess of who they believe is the murderer. And then the mediator reveals who the killer is.

UPC Murder Mystery Dinner Entertains
By Kate Sine

If you are a fan of the classic game, Clue, then UPC's Murder Mystery dinner is the event for you.  The University Programming Council (UPC) is hosting a three-course meal   in the Lane University Center Manicur Assembly Hall on December 8th at 7 PM. FSU students may purchase a $6 ticket to help catch the killer while enjoying a plated dinner. Tickets are available in the Lane University Center Box Office Monday through Friday from 9am-4pm.
The scenario for Tuesday night is that a man who owns a restaurant has been murdered and the victim's family has been brought in for questioning. The audience members stand in as amateur Sherlocks while some UPC members act out the scenario.
