Fall Finals Stress-Busters @ Samford University Library

Finals are coming up next week at Samford University, and we've got a few things planned here at the library (in addition to our long study hours) to help you keep calm and do well during your exams.

Sunday night, 12/7, we're going to have coffee, cookies, and tutors, provided for your edification and enjoyment, on the 2nd floor of the library.  On the first floor, near the front doors, we're going to be handing out trail mix, courtesy of Parent Programs.

On Tuesday night (12/9), we're going to have late night pizza-- free!  Make sure you're here between 11:00 and 11:30 pm Tuesday night to score some delicious Papa John's slices on the first floor next to the circulation desk.

We're continuing our holiday tradition of asking students to help us decorate our Christmas trees with snowflakes, and we've got a snowflake station right near the front doors where you can take a break and get creative.

If you decorate and address an "I survived finals @ Samford University Library" postcard for us, we'll mail it for you!  You can find the postcards and supplies near the snowflake table, starting Sunday (12/7).

Finally, if you need a study break, we've got just the activity for you.  Grab one of the Goodwin Scavenger Hunts from the front desk (or anywhere else you might find some), and if you complete it correctly and return it, you can get a sweet reward-- a full sized candy bar!

Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or follow Goodwin on Twitter, for any updates!

So don't stress next week, Samford-- visit your library!
