Relaxation Days

It seems like the fall semester was just beginning and now final exams are just around the corner. So much to do! To stay relaxed and focused as you prepare for exams and write papers, be sure to join us in the Law Library for Relaxation Days . We will be offering free 10-minute massages on Tuesday, December 1 and Thursday, December 3.

The massages will be available between 10 am and 2 pm on both days. Sign up at the Public Services Desk.

Also, don’t forget about Happy Hour on Thursday. Take a break from your studies and come grab a snack! The fun starts at 3:30 pm.
