Throughout the next two weeks, several events will take place on campus to help students with studying for finals throughout the last couple of weeks of the semester.

Kicking off the week will be therapy dogs in the Shapiro Undergraduate Library, hosted by Central Student Government’s Student Health and Safety Commission. The event is free for students to attend from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.

CSG is also providing finals study spaces in the Michigan Union and Michigan League Ballrooms from Monday through Dec. 20. There will be free coffee provided.

Additionally, the Trotter Multicultural Center is starting a 72-Hour Study Break Thursday, with multiple events through Sunday. Each day, there will be a brunch from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., as well as movies, tutoring and dinner.

Thursday at Trotter there will be free yoga and massages starting at 6 p.m. There will be a dance party from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, there will be therapy dogs. Finally, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, there will be a soul food dinner.

“This event affords students the opportunity to study and/or just hang out while taking a break from studying in a relaxing and welcoming space,” the Trotter event page reads. “Whether it’s your first time navigating finals or you’re a seasoned pro, this time of year can be stressful.”

Starting on Thursday, all Michigan Dining Halls will also have study snacks available from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
