Do you need to relax and refuel before finals? The Temple Library is here to help.
Crunch Time Café is hosted by the Temple Library and provides activities to help students take a break during study days and final exams. The series of events includes free food, activities, and therapy dogs.
Freshman Rema Qasmieh appreciates Temple’s initiative to not only help students study but also help them relax. “The great thing about Temple is that they give us a lot of recreational things to do and I think that’s great because a lot of people are staying up and are definitely cramming.”
And she’s not the only one. Students like sophomore Asmaa Abdulah and senior McMishah Rapheal are thankful for the goodies the Library provides.
“The Crunch Time Café really does help. I came here for snacks and coffee and I found that,” stated Asmaa.
McMishah also benefited. “I appreciate it just for them just thinking about me. That’s something my mother and father would do.”
Possibly the most exciting event of the week is the De-stress with Dogs event that will be held on Friday. Students can stop by and hang out with some four legged friends.
“I am a huge dog fan and I’ve usually seen at other colleges that there is this dog event and I was wondering when Temple was going to get one,” stated Rema.
“I know how helpful they are for de-stressing,” agreed Asmaa.
Sometimes the best study tip can be to take a break. Stop by the Lecture Hall in the basement of Paley Library to unwind with some fun activities. Check out the Crunch Time Café events calendar for more info about the remaining events.
Good luck on your finals owls, and remember to treat yourself.
