By: Jasmine George

It’s almost Finals Week here at Florida State, and we’re ready to help you through it! The University Libraries will be hosting several events to alleviate stress and to help you finish the semester strong! This year, our Finals Week events will pay homage to the award-winning comedy show New Girl. So get ready for a fun-filled week of snacks, crafts, and games as you prepare for your exams!

We’ve made a webpage! University Libraries will be launching a webpage filled with different online resources to help you ace your exams. The site will show you different ways for you to get connected and maximize your studying! This blog will feature New Girl themed stress-busting activities. Articles, playlists, character quizzes, and so much more! We’ve also added ways to get personalized library help, explore our research guides, and library consultation scheduling. Be sure to check out this exciting webpage on Monday, April 18th!
