We have been hosting Fridays before Finals since October 2014. This program is held twice a semester: the Friday before midterms and the Friday before finals.
Normally our library closes at 5 p.m. on Fridays. On these occasions, we stay open until midnight and the library hosts quiet study upstairs and pizza and games downstairs.
Finals week: Could it BE any more stressful? Inevitably, final exams bring more students to the library along with heightened stress levels. Every semester, Roesch Library at University of Dayton hosts numerous stress-relief services and activities to help students succeed. To make the time more bearable, Roesch Library’s marketing and outreach team decides upon a theme to promote finals week services.
This program was held during finals week of the fall 2015 semester. We offered a variety of options for students to take a break from studying and "stress less." Some specific options were coloring, therapy dogs, board games, free coffee and snacks in the evening hours, and making stress balls. We partnered with several groups on campus (Wellness Peer Educators, Residence Hall Association and Veterinary Science majors) to offer a wide range of programming.
