Show of appreciation relieves exam-time stress for students

After pulling an all-night study session, first-year engineering student Mohamad Malhi was pleased to find coffee waiting for him Thursday in the Leddy Library’s lobby. Library staff distributed free coffee and cookies to patrons for its biannual Student Appreciation Day.

“It’s nice the university is doing this for us,” Malhi said as he sipped his drink. “I also really appreciate that the library is open all night during exams.”

Proceeds of the library’s book sale covered the cost of the goodies.

The giveaway was part of the library’s “de-stress month” observances, which include a fun lobby display of Leddy cats wishing students luck on their exams, a board game table providing a break from studying, and the “secrets wall” in the west building, where students can post notes on any subject they wish.
