Over 500 study early, study late!

During the two-week period (December 4 – 15) that the library offered extended hours for final exams, 509 students were served who were in the library early (between 8 and 8:30am) or late (between 10 and 11pm).

Coffee, tea and hot chocolate were served, along with cookies, as a late-night study break.

Many students expressed their appreciation for the longer hours and the hot drinks and snacks offered in the late evenings. Extended Library hours for final exams has become a popular Alexandria campus tradition.
