Finals Week Events

May 12th, 2011

The spring semester finals theme at College Library is “Show us what Study Strong looks like” and offers a variety of ways to share your exam week experiences. Feel like protesting the stress of finals? Want to feel solidarity with others who are studying? Come together in the unity of the finals week sentiment: Study Strong!

The schedule of events and give-aways sponsored by the library and campus partners is as follows:
