Classes end for the semester on Friday, Dec. 7, and the university’s librarians are once again pulling out all the stops to make Reading Week fun for students – or at least, a little less stressful. This year’s Recharge During Reading Week program unfolds at multiple locations with visits from therapy dogs, mindfulness workshops, music, dance, puzzles, and more. Caffeine and comfort food are are among the mainstays of the program.

The Long Night Against Procrastination will take place Tuesday, Dec. 11, providing a distraction-free work environment (no phones allowed), snacks, stretching, and drop-in consulations with writing partners, academic strategy partners, and librarians.  The Long Night will be hosted at the Haas Family Arts Library, the Anne T. and Robert M.
