Finals Are Coming! Take a Study Break With These Activities at the Library, May 1 - 6

Students at the library.

The Dimenna-Nyselius Library has planned a week of fun, stress-reducing activities for students to unwind, recharge, and refocus.

Finals week is quickly approaching and the staff at the DiMenna-Nyselius Library invites you to take part in some of the exciting activities they have planned from May 1 to 6. Events kick off with Cram Jam on May 1, from noon until 5 p.m., featuring free breakfast. Other highlights include free study supply giveaways each day at the circulation desk, visits with therapy dogs, surprise snack carts, and more. New this year, the library will host its first “Group Scream” at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1 and Thursday, May 2 on the library lawn, to help release finals energy and frustrations.

In addition, Counseling and Psychological Services will have drop-in hours in the library. Board games, coloring, and Legos will also be available near the main level staircase. Follow the library’s social media accounts to learn about pop up events.
