Every fall and spring, students come face to face with finals. The finals countdown. The finals destination. For students, finals are the ultimate test. (Literally, since they often have the ultimate test of the semester.)
Everything is on the line academically. That’s why Falvey Memorial Library staff members give students the chance each semester to chill and chow in a more low stakes line, one that winds around bars filled with nachos, Tater Tots, and desserts. Because four out of five students know that the first step toward a well-fed mind is a well-fed body.
Dessert Bar, spring 2019: Donuts, cupcakes, and cookies–oh my!
Tater Tot Bar, fall 2017: The grade students gave this event was “snacktacular!”
Cereal Bar, Spring 2018: Spoonfuls of relaxation.
Shawn Proctor, MFA, is communications and marketing program manager at Falvey Memorial Library. His favorite cereal is Chocolate Chex, which he claims is “life.”
