PAWS for a Study Break

Credit: WashJeff
The semester has finally come to an end, but things are about to get better on campus. Due to the high demand, the U. Grant Miller Library will be bringing back PAWS in order to help students get through their finals week. This Saturday, from 11:30am to 1:30pm, make sure to take a study break in the Walker Room of the library in order to relieve the stress finals week may be causing. Along with that, there will be a late night breakfast at The Commons at 10:00pm on Monday, smores and hot chocolate from 12:00pm to 2:00pm at the Rossin Patio on Tuesday, and donuts, fruit, cheese, pepperoni, games and an open gym at Church of the Covenant at 8:00pm on Tuesday. Hope to see y'all there!
