Last week's brain teaser...not a single person got it correct! Check out Kelsey's door for this week's brain teaser!

Dennis is doing his best to manage finals stress with some calming tea and meditation.

Dennis was starting to doze off while studying, so he took an energizing activity break.

Dennis is working hard to make it through finals week.

Dennis is excited to welcome today's ANRAD students!

Dennis enjoyed the launch of Issue 6 of Inspired! He's considering submitting some of his poetry to Issue 7 when the call for submissions comes out next semester.

Meet Dennis, the ASC's finals week mascot!

Dennis has a lot of studying to do before next week, but he knows that a comfy chair and some seasonal candy can help.
