Winner of “Finals Can Be Suite” contest announced!

So, how does this compare for a finals schedule: organic chemistry on Saturday, microbiology lab on Monday, ethics of adoption and contemplative tradition on Tuesday, statistics on Thursday and, the grand finale, microbiology on Friday. We don’t know about you, but we can’t help but think that it’s too bad professors don’t give credit per syllable!

Well, even though creativity or exigency did not count for our Finals Can Be Suite Contest, it seems like the right person won the usage of Conference Room 206 in the Learning Commons for Finals Week anyway! That’s the exam schedule of Elizabeth Prather, a junior Biology major, who was the lucky winner of the random drawing held from all the #falveypeeps photo entries uploaded to the library’s social media accounts over the last few weeks. Prather and her selected study group now have the exclusive opportunity to study in the room usually reserved only for library events and meetings.

Prather is very excited and confident that winning this contest will help greatly through her grueling finals schedule. “Having this study room honestly just gives me a leg up to know that every night when my study groups get together, we’ll have somewhere to go! Not to mention that now everyone wants to be my best friend to get in on it! I have told them I will take bribes and then choose accordingly,” she says with a wink (At least, we think it’s a wink! ;-) .)

Thanks to all who entered the contest, and good luck to all facing finals, which start tomorrow. Even if you didn’t win a private suite, remember that now through May 9, the Library has extended areas available for 24/7 study – including the first, second and ground floors of the main building. Finding quiet places to hunker down and hit the books uninterrupted should be easier than ever. Just remember your Wildcard to gain access to the building.
