Final(s) Countdown: Relax with fun study breaks @ the Library

It’s the last week of classes, and you know what that means! Time to count down to finals week!  The Library’s Final(s) Countdown activities can help you relax, de-stress, and power through your end-of-the-year exams and papers.

This semester, we’ve got old favorites as well as new, fun activities.  According to the New York Times, studies show “taking regular breaks from mental tasks improves productivity and creativity.”   During the last week of classes, you can send a postcard home, play board games with friends, design a button from recycled book jackets, unwind at our knitting circle, or fuel yourself with free coffee and bagels.

The Library is partnering with the Purchase Tea Club, ResLife, and the Office of Student Life to bring you these fun finals week study breaks. Funding is provided in part by generous grants from Student Affairs and Chartwells/Purchase College Association. Thank you!
