Report from the Field

One of the most crowded places during Finals Week is the ZSR Library.  There are many reasons to be there – books, Starbucks, librarians who can help you find sources, but also because of Wake the Library.  Wake the Library is the ZSR’s way of providing food, fun, and frivolity to break up the stress of studying.

Lastnight I saw this on the ZSR Facebook page:  12 10 15 counseling fairies“The #counselingfairies are here and they are passing out snacks to keep you fueled! Thank you WFU Counseling Center!”

My inside source at the ZSR tells me that Wake the Library is serving wraps at midnight tonight (Thursday) and hot dogs tomorrow night (Friday).

As is typical of Finals Week, there are lots of people with their feet up, snoozing on seats, and wearing comfy clothes.  (I saw several people at the Late Night Breakast in pajama bottoms and sweatshirts, which was awesome).

I’m also told “there are more smiling faces as the end draws near” 🙂

Study hard, Deacs.  Do your best and let it rest, as we like to say.
