It’s Finals Time!

May 1st, 2017 by

As is tradition, College Library and its campus partners will once again attempt to ease the stress of finals by bringing some fun into an otherwise anxiety-filled week of exams. And because College Library is the new home of SOAR Advising, we’re hoping to capture the advice current students would give their #UWNewStudent self. What do you know now that you wish you knew then? Look for a chance to share your hard-earned wisdom on Monday, May 8.

Until then, there will be coloring pages and puzzles all week to help relieve the stress of finals. The library is also open 24/7 to accommodate those studying for exams. We do not close until Friday, May 12, at 6 p.m.

Scheduled events include:

Thursday, May 4
5 – 7 p.m. – “Trash Your Stressors” – free activities from UHS (University Health Services) including make your own stress relief kits, trash your biggest stressors & decorate a gratitude jar. 1st Floor Center
