(University of Minnesota economics senior Victor) Llapa, who keeps a schedule of three or four overnight study sessions per week, and (pre-med junior Eyob) Weyu have developed a bond over their similar study habits. They wake each other up from naps and let one another back in the building after it closes.
Llapa tells the Daily reporter during a 5 a.m. interview:
“A lot of students do this. Personally, I don’t have a choice.”
