Finals-Lite at College Library

December 15, 2021

College Library’s tradition of offering a series of finals events to encourage students during exams was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but this year it returns in a slightly scaled-back form. Although the perennial favorite, Dogs on Call, will not be joining us during the fall semester, we hope the volunteers and their therapy canines will be comfortable joining us in the courtyard during the spring semester. Library patrons did get to enjoy a visit from another furry mammal this year, however. Bucky Badger cheered on those studying in the library on Monday evening. We were also pleased to once again offer Midnight Madness in partnership with the UW Writing Center. In addition to these events, we have organized several other activities to help reduce stress and offer encouragement to students over the next few weeks.
