Comments Off on Finals @ the Library Wrap Up: How Many Students Did We Reach?
It's hard to believe the semester has come to a close already. Finals are difficult for our students, and we understand that. At the end of every semester, we ramp up our efforts to make the library as welcoming as possible so that students can do their best work. Along with some perennial favorites, such as the therapy dogs and coffee, we tried some new things this time around, such as our VIP Study Room contest. As you can see from the numbers, we reached a tremendous amount of people this December!
The library staff send our best wishes for a peaceful and restful winter break. We look forward to working with you in 2016.

Our gate counts show 3,700 people came through our Library doors in the 24 hour period starting on Wednesday morning (12/9)! That's a lot of studying (cramming), paper writing and problem solving going on here! During the two reading days, 350 students came to de-stress and pet our therapy dogs.
We will be open 24 hours every night (except for Saturday, Dec. 12 when we close at 9:00 pm). Coffee, hot chocolate and tea are provided FREE during overnight hours.
