De-stress this exam season with puppies, games and more at the Library

Feeling the exam studying blues? Struggling under a deluge of term papers?

The Library is a great, quiet space full of resources to help you finish off your term on a high note as you cram for your exams or put the polish off your final assignments. But it’s important to take an occasional break from the books to give your mind and body a chance to de-stress from all that pressure. The Library has a bunch of fun and relaxing activities that will help you recharge and unwind after a long study session!
