Science Library: Welcome new and returning students!
During final exams, all branches of the University Library will be providing free snacks or refreshments to students who are studying in the libraries. These snacks have been generously donated by the U of S Alumni Association.
To give our students a break from studying, several libraries will also be providing the opportunity to take part in fun activities.
Education & Music Library
Revist a less stressful time in your life at the Education & Music Library. There is an area set up in the Library Instruction Centre (just to the right of the library entrance!) where you can play with Play-Doh, draw and make crafts, and even play classic Atari games.
These activities are available whenever the library is open.
On Thursday, April 10th from 11:30 to 12:30, come to the Education & Music Library and learn Origami - the ancient art of paper folding! All supplies will be provided.
Every weekday afternoon from 12 - 5 pm, drop by Room 102 (1st floor) to take a break from studying. We'll have craft supplies and Play-Doh for those of you who would like to create something beautiful. We'll also have magnetic poetry available.
There is also one big planned event on Friday, April 11th - The Angry Birds Competition! Come to the Collaborative Learning Lab at 2pm, and let out some of your frustrations by throwing birds into stuctures and try to knock out some pigs. Everyone who competes can put their name into a draw to win some fabulous prizes. The best part though, is that there will the CAKE!
Even though the Science Library is quiet, you can still have the opportunity to take a break here. Revisit your inner child...Create something wonderful at the Science Library Play-Doh table.
The Play-Doh will be available at all times that the Science Library is open. What will you create?
Other Activities on Campus
The Student Enrollment Services Division has created a helpful site called Stress Less... during exams which lists all of the activities happening around campus throughout the final exam period.
One event of note is PAWS Your Stress, happening April 9th, 10th and 11th from 11:30 to 1:30 in Convocation Hall. On these days, therapy dogs will be here for you to snuggle and play with. There will also be free massages, snacks and health displays.
