Libraries Host DeStress Fest With Finals Looming

Let’s face it — finals are right around the corner. No matter how savvy of a procrastinator you’ve become, you’ll have to face the stress eventually. In addition to extended hours and later buses, Penn State’s libraries will once again host a DeStress Fest to keep whatever trace of tranquility we have left intact.

Events kick off at the Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library with Origami and puzzles all day and free snacks in the evening every day until Thursday, April 28.

From May 1 to May 3 (when stress peaks for most of us), Pattee and Paterno Libraries will offer games, art therapy, and free coffee and snacks in 103 Paterno Library from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Puzzles will be available in the Paterno Lobby, and you can stop by the Pattee library to play some Wii.

The Earth and Mineral Sciences Library will provide fresh apples and snacks while supplies last, in addition to puzzles and extra comfortable seating and tables from May 1 to May 5.

There will be more free snacks and drinks (with the request to BYOCup this time) in the Engineering Library from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on May 1 and again from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 7p.m. May 2 to May 4. Coloring, Spirograph, puzzles, and Origami will be available all week.

The Physical and Mathematical Sciences Library will have free snacks and puzzles all day from May 2 to May 6.

If you’re looking for silver linings, these two weeks might not seem quite so bad anymore. Think about all the free food, puzzles, and drinks on the horizon — just don’t forget to BYOCup.
