Study Breaks in the Library

Keep Calm and Quit Studying

Well, at least for a few minutes.

Good study habits include giving your brain a rest to consolidate all you’ve learned. During finals period this term, the Library is providing many ways for students to take fun and creative study breaks. From November 17-25, look for the study break sign (below) in your favorite library and enjoy some productive distractions from your school work. Throughout the libraries you’ll find jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, Legos, knitting lessons, crossword puzzles, origami, and more. We also will be hosting a special study break guest! Checkers the English bulldog will be in Baker Main Hall from 1-3pm on Friday November 20.┬áTaking a break in order to assemble a puzzle, build a tower, fold paper cranes, or pet a therapy dog surely will lower your stress levels and get your mind off finals for a few minutes, allowing you to go back to your studies with renewed energy and focus.
