Exam Cram a Success!

Another successful Exam Cram “goes down in the books” (pun intended)!  Students mentioned how much they appreciated and enjoyed snacks and beverages, the Weaving Workshop led by Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood,  three different Meditations led by Emily Nisley, drop-in tutoring with Academic Support & Tutoring Services, librarian help with “works cited” lists, and, especially, extended building hours (10 am – 10 pm) on Saturday and Sunday.

Hot beverages were available all day – and snack offerings (some were even healthy!) were regularly replenished.
