Do you just want to spend four weeks cuddling up with a fuzzy blanket and some romantic comedies that will make you feel all the feels? You’re not alone, and winter break is the perfect time for that.
This year’s winter break will be approximately a month long. If you’re fearful of what on Earth you could possible do with that time, especially after a semester jam-packed with work, you’re not alone—but fret not! The world is filled with television, movies, books, food and games to consume.

And with Oscar season rushing upon us, winter break is usually filled with a wide array of movies for every type of audience member.
Whether you’re a slave to studio, indentured to essays or bonded to biology, chances are you’ve missed out on some pop culture this semester. Don’t worry though, Cadenza has you covered.

While campus will look fairly empty until winter break ends, some of Washington University’s athletic teams will be hard at work multiple times between Christmas and the start of the spring semester. Here’s a quick look at Wash. U.’s winter teams and what they’ll be doing over the next few weeks.
Not everyone will be home in time for Christmas this year, thanks to the late finals schedule this year. And students are not happy. The last finals this year are on December 22, alarmingly close to the holiday for students who celebrate it.
