Engineering students Mohammad Malhi and Ali Al-Mahdi enjoy coffee and cookies, provided free Thursday by Leddy Library staff.
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.
