Ahead of their first college exams week, first-year students Israa Dardeer (left), a software engineering major from Aswan, Egypt, and Shagun Patel, a computer science major from Kalyan, India, decorate ornaments together Tuesday during the Holiday Memory Maker in the Student Innovation Center atrium. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the free study break offered students the time to set their backpacks aside and paint ornaments, sip hot cocoa, decorate cookies and enjoy holiday-themed movies.
