therapy dogThe SDSU Library is again offering extended space and hours during the peak study time this semester. Beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, December 10, the entire library dome area will be open 24 hours, offering additional space and time for students to prepare for finals. The 24/7 Study Area will continue to be open 24 hours during this period as well. For the safety of our students, a RED ID will be required for admittance after the main library closes. The expanded study space will end at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, December 17.

This year, we’re throwing in some extras. Like biofeedback sessions. And stress management workshops. And an alpha chamber, which is an egg-shaped chair with built-in speakers and a TV that plays videos promoting growth and relaxation. We’ll also have someone here to teach meditation. Oh, and last but not least, THERAPY DOGS! There’s nothing like soft fur and sloppy kisses to melt away stress and fatigue. Keep an eye out for signs posted around the library and on our Website listing where and when these events/perks take place.
