Stay Safe During Exam Cram!

We hope you feel safe and secure in the Libraries, but we understand that late nights can present some safety concerns. If you're ever in immediate danger, please call 9-1-1. If you're ever feeling unsure or unsafe about being in the library or traveling to and from the library during late night hours, we have resources that can help.

Need caffeine? We've got you covered!

Argo Tea is once again extending hours at the Mary Idema Pew Library.  


Free Events for Students (with Student ID)

We know you're studying hard for finals! Adding some yoga and massage to your routine may actually help you perform better. Learn more about the benefits of stress-reducing activities by contacting the Counseling Center, Recreation and Wellness, and Health and Wellness.
