WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Lycoming College's Snowden Library hosted its annual "Snowden 'Til 2" event on Friday, Dec. 10, in an effort to help students prepare for final exams, held Dec. 13-17. An attendance of nearly 500 made this year's "Snowden 'Til 2" the largest to date.
The event took place from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and featured study sessions with professors, tutors from the Academic Resource Center, a "Stree-Free Zone" for relaxation and free refreshments.
"The success of Snowden 'til 2 is dependent on faculty participation in leading review sessions," said Alison Gregory, assistant professor and instructional services librarian. "This one-on-one time between professors and students is one of the greatest strengths of a liberal arts college. The library is pleased to be a part of that."
"Stress-Free Zone" activities included free chair massages sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs, "Dance Dance Revolution" sponsored by the Creative Arts Society, hot tea and a kotatsu table sponsored by the Japanese Culture Club, and a variety of board games and puzzles supplied by the library and its staff.
Refreshments and door prizes were sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Assistant Dean for Freshmen.
