Campus Stays Open for "Late Night Exam Cram"

Waterbury, Conn. - On Monday, May 9, NVCC hosted the second biannual “Late Night Exam Cram,” a collaborative effort by the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), Max R. Traurig Library & Learning Resources Center and Student Activities and Public Relations offices to increase campus access during final exam preparations by keeping vital resources open afterhours.

Students who attended gained three extra hours of access to tutors and writing coaches, research assistance, group study rooms, the Collaboration Studio and computer labs. Students also had the option to de-stress in Café West, where a variety of healthy foods were provided along with a number of raffle prizes.

In the ACE, 11 faculty volunteers helped the ACE staff serve 93 students who came to study, receive tutoring assistance and collect a “Study Survival Kit,” which included a stress ball, nuts, index cards, highlighters, gum, crackers, pens, an ACE bookmark, inspirational note, post-its and candy.

Many students expressed gratitude at the longer hours, food to keep them going, kits to keep them motivated and people standing by to ensure they achieved their study goals said Kathy Taylor, Esq., director of the ACE. Some provided the highest compliment, she added, “You guys really care.”

The Library received a smaller but equally enthusiastic crowd of late night studiers according to Jaime Hammond and Elaine Milnor, library staff.

“Students like to have the campus open in this way during the all-critical exam week, and several of them asked if we would be open every night that week,” said Milnor.

The Exam Cram was sponsored by CONNCAS and the Student Government Association (SGA) and made possible by the generous volunteerism of more than 25 faculty and staff members.
