We’re Here For You During Exams

Final exams start up this week, which means campus will be buzzing with students handing in final projects and studying for tests before they head into winter break. The Library is pleased to extend Library hours to midnight December 12-20 and provide free Barrow coffee December 14-16 after 8pm. In addition, we are offering a few extra ways to unwind and brighten your long study days,  which includes a draw that gives students a chance to win a gift card to Barrow and the MRU Bookstore!

 

Complimentary Massages in the Ideas Lounge
December 12 4pm-8pm
December 13 5pm-8:30pm

Sit back, relax and enjoy a complimentary fifteen minute massage in the Ideas Lounge, courtesy of the MRU Massage Therapy Practicum students. Those studying in the Library will be encouraged to take a break and sign up for a massage to help release tension and relax their minds.

 

Yoga in the Immersion Studio
December 12 3pm-4pm

We’ve partnered with MRU Recreation to bring Akhanda Yoga instructor Jade Cozier to the Library for a free hour of yoga students can attend to help relax as they prepare for long study sessions leading into exams.

 

Intro to Stress Reduction Meditation in the Immersion Studio
December 13 1pm-3pm

Students will be introduced to stress reduction through meditation. There’s no better place to unwind than the calming vibes of the 360º experience in the Immersion Studio.

 

*A Chance to Win!
To shake things up this semester, we’ll also have a draw where students can enter to win a $50 gift card to either Barrow or the MRU Bookstore. Students can enter by:

  1. We want to see how you use the Library! Share a photo in the Library on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #LibrarySupport. Each post will be an entry in the draw. Tag @MRULibrary in your post and capture anything from your favourite Library study spot to a resource or service in the building that you rely on to get through exams.
  2. Grab a paper ballot when you check out at the Library Service Desk.  Fill in your name, email, year of study, program and hand it to Library staff who will slip it in the ballot box on the main floor.

 

* Contest rules: You must be a registered MRU student to win. Contest closes on December 18 at 11:30pm MST.
