The weather is gross and you have a lot of work to do. Why not cheer yourself up by sending some love? This Thursday and Friday we’ll have a variety of supplies out at the Library Service Desk so you can make valentines for yourself, your friends, or that special someone (your favorite librarian, perhaps?). Let someone know how much you appreciate them! (Or just have fun playing with some glitter and doilies). Crafting starts at noon!
The Student Wellness Advisor will also be hosting a few fun events this week:
Wed 2/8 : Tea and Treats
2:30-4pm, Sackler 4 behind the cafe
Enjoy an afternoon study break with the Wellness Advisor
Thurs 2/9: Analysis of Love and Relationships
12-1pm in Sackler 316
Lunch will be provided for this discussion group
Fri 2/10: Fun Day
3-4:30pm, Sackler 507
Unwind with therapy dogs and people treats!
It’s our favorite time of year! Yes, that’s right. It’s turkey time!
Starting at 12pm this Thursday 11/17 and Friday 11/18, you can stop by the Library Service Desk and create your own feathered friend to bring home to Mom (or back to your study carrel). We’ll have a variety of materials out so you can create anything your heart desires, from the simple and majestic hand turkey (our personal favorite) to some 3D pinecone poultry.
Don’t have time to delve into a craft?
Just lend a hand–we only need the outline!–to the giant library turkey we plan to make.
See you there!
Pumpkin time is here! Take a break from studying and flex your creative muscles at the Library Service Desk this Thursday and Friday. Starting at 12pm each day, we’ll have all the supplies you need to create a festive pumpkin to adorn your apartment or study carrel.
