Another successful Exam Cram

Last week, the Library and Learning Commons hosted another successful Exam Cram event—thank you to everyone who attended!  If you still have studying to do, we will be open during normal hours this week and we still have some leftover snacks, so stop in while they last!

Good luck on exams!
