Stress Free Events at the Libraries During Finals


By Marketing and Communications | 04-24-2015


Let the University Libraries ease the stresses of finals, May 6-11, with complimentary massages, furry “study buddies” from Aggieland Pets With A Purpose (APWAP), a creative outlet at the “Stress Buster Station,” and more. 

Massages will be available at the Medical Sciences Library, Evans Library and West Campus Library from the Student Health Services. The always popular pet therapy dogs from APWAP — a non-profit volunteer organization that provides trained animals for educational, rehabilitative and emotional assistance purposes — will be at MSL, Evans Library and WCL.

Back by demand, the Stress Buster Station will be available at Evans Library and MSL throughout finals. It will feature a creative activities table for students to take a study break while enjoying games, coloring, puzzles, Legos, and more. Evans Library will also have complimentary pennies to put on Sully for good luck, and free sunglasses, water bottles, pens, highlighters, and more from the Libraries.
