Atkins Library has planned a number of events to help you de-stress, take a break, and relax during exams. 

Paws for Exam Therapy

Spend some time with certified therapy dogs! All sessions will be held near the back of the first floor: 

  • Thursday, May 4: 4-6 p.m.
  • Friday, May 5: 4-6 p.m.
  • Sunday, May 7: 12-2 p.m.
  • Monday, May 8: 4-6 p.m.

Recharge Room

Need a break from the books? Head to the 2nd floor Visualization Lab to enjoy a snack, calming music, fun activities, and to grab study items like dry erase markers or index cards that you might be missing. 

  • May 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th, & 10th
  • 1-4 p.m. each day in the Visualization Lab

Donut Be Stressed - Late-night coffee and donut break 

Just when you'll need a pick-me-up! Grab a donut and a cup of coffee to refuel for a night of studying.
Tuesday, May 9th at 8 p.m. in the Visualization Lab on the 2nd floor.


Let's Talk in the Library

Let's Talk is a brief, drop-in, and confidential problem-solving consultation with a CAPS team member. Visits are first come, first serve. No appointment is necessary and the wait time is usually brief. This is not therapy and it is not designed for students needing urgent help.

  • Thursday May 4th, 1-3 p.m. in room 139B
  • Monday May 8th, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. in room 139B


Study Playlist 

From chill study music to tunes that will get you pumped, the library has a playlist for you! Check out our student-created playlists any time at and share your suggestion on the whiteboard near the library’s main entrance.
