Study Breaks and Snacks!
Research suggests that you should take frequent
breaks while you study. For example, some experts claim
that the average person can only concentrate for about 50
minutes. After that, your ability to learn and retain information
decline. For every hour that you study, you should treat
yourself to a 10 minute break. We're here to help...

Spring U-Pass and New ID Card Distribution.
All day division students who are considered
full-time for the spring 2004 semester will receive a U-Pass,
which provides unlimited rides on the CTA from January 20
- May 22, 2004. Status as a full-time student is determined
by your official division status, and not by the number
of credit hours you take in a particular semester. If
you qualify for a U-Pass and want to obtain it during the
first available distribution, you must be registered for
spring classes by 5:00pm on December 19, 2003.
Spring U-Pass cards and new Chicago-Kent ID cards will
be distributed on Thursday, January 15, Friday, January
16, and Tuesday, January 20, 2004. The exact times and locations
will be announced in an email sent during Winter Break.
Please note: All Chicago-Kent students will be
issued new ID cards in January replacing their existing
cards. You must pick up your new ID card even if you do
not qualify for the U-Pass or do not want to use your U-Pass.
If you are not registered as a full-time student by December
19, 2003, you have a financial hold on your account on that
date, or you do not have an ID picture on file in the Registrar's
Office by that date, you will not receive a U-Pass during
this initial distribution period. Students who qualify for
the U-Pass after December 19 or were not included in the
initial spring U-Pass request sent to CTA will have passes
ordered for them on January 26, 2004. We expect these passes
to arrive at the law school by February 4, 2004.
Fall U-Pass Activation Period.
Fall ‘03 U-Pass cards will remain valid
through December 19, 2003, the last day of final exams.
If you have problems with your pass before this date, please
