I’m Daniella Snyder, a first-year graduate student at Villanova University, and your ‘Cat in Falvey Library’s Stacks. I’ll be posting about academics– from research to study habits and everything in between– and how the Falvey Library can play a large role in your success here on campus!

I know of no better coping strategy for finals week than eating dessert. Okay, maybe there are a few…but regardless, I’m going to continue my tradition of Ben & Jerry’s for dinner every night of finals week until I graduate.

We all know the end of the semester is stressful – exams, deadlines, final projects – but did you know that finals is just desserts spelled backwards? Stop by Falvey Library’s semi-annual stress buster and make finals a “piece of cake”…ha-ha…get it?

On Thursday, May 2 from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the first floor lounge the library will have a dessert bar with an assortment of treats. Take a break from the madness of finals and relax with board games, puzzles, coloring, and Perler beads. “Donut” worry about finals; our librarians will also be on hand to offer last-minute research assistance!

The relaxation continues Friday, May 3! We’ll welcome our furry friends from Pals for Life at the Oreo (rain location, Falvey 205) from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Stress-Free Happy Healthy Hours event is co-sponsored by POWER, Villanova Student Advancement, and the Office of Health Promotion.

“Pudding” up with finals is tough. If you’re in need of “s’more” relaxation, stop by and get that extra boost as the semester ends.

Can’t make it to Falvey’s finals week stress buster? No sweat. Check out these recipes for desserts that can be made in your dorm room.

Many thanks to Kallie Stahl for her previous blog post, “Stressed is Just Desserts Spelled Backwards: Make Finals a Piece of Cake at Falvey’s Annual Open House.”
