Finish Strong Week

Finish Strong Week is a new tradition at SMSU that has been developed by the Office of Student Success with the help and support of many offices/departments on campus. The program is held annually every spring semester during the last week of classes. The goal of the program is to help students finish the semester strong by preparing them for finals, assisting students with stress relief, and to celebrate the end of the academic year! All events are free to attend for SMSU students unless otherwise noted.
