Student Worker Appreciation Day
Law Library showed its appreciation to our great student workers with a
Pizza Party on April 18. Both the pizza and Lauren Knowlton's
strawberry cupcakes went like hotcakes. Many thanks to our student
workers...we couldn't keep the library open without you.

Take A Bite out of Finals: Candy Bar Social!
Take a quick break from studying to join the Law Library for a Candy
Bar Social during Reading Days. We'll provide a variety of bite-size
candy bars and
beverages and hopefully some relief from the pressures of finals.

Law Library Hours
study hours in the Law Library during exams begin on Wednesday, April
19. The library will be open until 1:00 a.m. every day thereafter until
May 17. For weekdays this represents an additional hour, but on
weekends this means four extra study hours on Friday and Saturday!
Students looking for good places to study will be interested in the schedule of hours for the Student Learning Center.
soon as the center's hours are finalized, we will post them to the Law
School kiosks and send an email to the Law School community.
Jigsaw Puzzles and Final Exams
If you are a 1L, you may have been
surprised last semester at the end of classes when puzzles, games, and
foam rubber frisbees began appearing in the Law Library. What
were those crazy librarians trying to do, distract you from studying
Well, yes, sorta. We call those stress-busters, and we put them
out to entice you into relaxing for short times. We remember what
final exams were like. We know how your head gets muddled from
too much reading too late into the night, your heart races from too
much adrenaline and caffeine, and your palms sweat from anxiety about
that class you did not really understand or that prof who really did not
understand you. That is stress.
There are destructive ways to deal with stress: fight with loved ones,
drink alcohol, eat comfort foods (see piece above on our Candy Bar Social). Those things will get you
divorced, drunk, and fat. There are also constructive ways to
deal with stress: exercise, get pampered at a spa, give yourself a
mini vacation by indulging a relaxing hobby. We couldn't fit a
gym or a spa into the library, so we settled for puzzles and
games. Enjoy them in moderation, please. And if you have
ideas for other kinds of stress-busters, tell one of your friendly
local law librarians.
Good luck on exams!
