[TepperCares] National Volunteer Month

April is the National Volunteer Month and as the new TepperCares president I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight a few of my classmates that make Tepper more than just a business school.

De-stressing Activities for Midterm Season

Midterm season can be a stressful time, but more often than not it can actually be more beneficial to take a break every now and then than to keep working through the entire time.
