Stressed about Finals?

We're here to help. Stop by Wilson Library on Tuesday, May 5 between 2pm-4pm and enjoy some of our finals week activities: take home a mini potted plant, play sidewalk games, grab a free book, or play some board games. We'll wrap up with a poetry reading in the basement from 4pm-5pm across from the coffee shop.

24/7 access to the library starts on Friday, May 8th. You'll need your U-Card to access the building after hours.
