Study Smarter Not Harder!

Today is a dead day, so everyone is busy studying...right?

Well, even if you aren't today, hopefully sometime in the next week you will be. If you need study tips, we will be with you right until the end, posting study tips to our Facebook Page and to our Twitter. You can also find our research tips from midterms by looking for the hashtag #TSUMidtemMania on both sites. And remember, if you need a good place to study, or help with research, the library is open for extended hours now and will begin all-night study hours on Sunday. Good luck with Finals!

Need a break from finals? On December 2 (today) in the Thompson Student Center, there will be fun activities for Students, Faculty, and Staff from 11am-3pm. An oxygen bar, make your own stress ball station, meditation/visualization room, healthy brain food, and so much more will be setup. Remember to take time to eat right, get plenty of rest, and exercise. You will be more likely to succeed when you have eaten a good meal, gotten a good night sleep, and studied regularly.

The Ranger College Cosmetology school will also be offering free manicures and pedicures to Tarleton students. There will also be $3 haircuts, what a deal! Prepping for finals mentally and physically is important; take the time to relax.

Free coffee will be provided Wednesday, December 4th through Friday, December 13th at different departments around campus. There will be signs posted in those departments letting you know you where the coffee is located. Just remember to bring your own cup and drink as much as you need. For a healthier option, choose an apple instead of coffee. Apples can give you just as much energy as caffeine without the crash. Hope to see you all there! Good luck to everyone on finals.

If you need help during finals, feel free to tweet your questions to @tarletonlib #TSUFinalsFrenzy. Also, be looking for research/writing tips on our Facebook.

Extended hours have started!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  

We're on the downhill slope to the end of the semester now, and to help you all out the library has started their extended hours this week.  From December 1st through 5th, the library will be open until 2am to give your study time an extra boost.  On Saturday the 7th, we will also stay open until 8pm.

The real fun begins on the 8th, when we transition to overnight study.  Full services will still be offered during regular hours, but the library will be open as a study area between midnight and 7am.  Be sure to bring your Tarleton ID, because you will need to sign in on the main floor to stay after-hours or to enter the building after midnight.

On the Thursday the 12th, as finals are ending we will close at 10pm that night.  We'll wrap up the semester on the 13th by transitioning to interim hours.  We'll be open 8-5pm Monday-Friday and are closed on weekends until we close for Christmas break on December 20th.
