Lycoming College's Snowden Library will host its annual "Snowden 'Til 2" event on Friday, Dec. 9, in an effort to help students prepare for final exams, to be held Dec. 12-16.

The event will take place from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and will feature study sessions with professors, tutors from the Academic Resource Center, a "Stree-Free Zone" for relaxation and free refreshments.

"The success of the event 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."

This year, a record-breaking number of faculty members and Academic Resource Center tutors are scheduled to participate.

"Stress-Free Zone" activities will include free chair massages, pizza, snacks and games.

Refreshments and door prizes are provided by the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Assistant Dean for Freshmen.

It offers 35 academic majors and is recognized as a Tier 1 institution by U.S. News & World Report.
