examweek2019

Beginning on Study Day (Tuesday, April 23), Dacus Library will be providing refreshments and fun activities each evening to power you through final exams.

There will be lots of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and snacks each evening starting at 4:00 p.m. (We will be starting at 2:00 p.m. on Study Day!)

And for some stress-relieving and brain-engaging fun, there will be puzzles to put together, legos to create with, and coloring pages to color!

All three floors of the library will stay open all night (except for Friday and Saturday nights). If you’re staying late to study, you won’t have to be crowded on the main floor!

Good luck with finals… You’re almost done!
