Enjoy Beverages, Study Pets and More During Finals

Marketing and Communications | November 28, 2012

Students studying for finals can find lots of comfortable study space plus late night beverages at the Sterling C. Evans/Annex, as well as the West Campus (WCL) and Medical Sciences (MSL) and Policy Sciences and Economics (PSEL) Libraries. To relieve the stress that finals bring, they can also take advantage of chair massages in the evenings at Evans, WCL, and MSL. Staff from Student Health Services will offer massages Dec.  6, 10, and 11 from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. in the Evans Library Whitley Suite (first floor, Room 105); in Room 127 at WCL and Room 202 at MSL. Additionally, chair massages will be offered to professional students Dec.  3-5 at MSL in the GPS Zone, Room 113B. 

Free hot chocolate will be available Dec. 6, 9, 10, and 11 beginning at 9:30 p.m. at the Evans Library and 10 p.m. at WCL. MSL is offering hot beverages until Dec. 11 beginning at 9 p.m. Hot chocolate will be available in PSEL on Dec. 6, 9, 10, and 11 from 8:00 to 11:00 p.m. each night.

For extra comfort and companionship, Aggieland Pets With A Purpose (APWAP) will bring several special friends to act as “study buddies” for pet therapy. Pets will be on campus Dec. 6, 10, and 11 from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. each night at Evans Library and from 6-7:30 p.m. each night at WCL and MSL. APWAP, a non-profit volunteer organization, provides trained animals for educational, rehabilitative and emotional assistance purposes.

“Our trained pets were such a big hit last year that we’re offering them again. Students need the break from studying and love playing with the dogs. It’s a great stress reliever and good therapy, too,” explained Susan Goodwin, head of Public and Learning Services. “We are grateful to the Aggie Moms for providing funding for these amenities through the Federation of Texas A&M University Mothers’ Clubs Library Endowment.”
