Finals Week: Studio Ghibli

Long Night Against Procrastination

We're kicking off this semester's finals week activities with the Long Night Against Procrastination!

Join us in the library December 7th from 7PM - Midnight for a night of studying, writing, snacks, camaraderie, and crafts! We'll be using Conference Room 1B and Wahrhaftig to offer you both a quiet space and a more lively space if you prefer some noise when you work.

We're thrilled to have 3 librarians available to help you with any research questions all night as well as tutors from the STEM and Writing Centers from 8PM - 10PM!

Watch this space for more updates about finals week activities!

If you have any questions, you can contact Steph Crowell at

Finals Week Activities

What better way to relieve some end-of-semester stress than making memes? Make a Video Game-themed meme related to finals or the end of the semester (keep it clean!) using one of the templates we have provided below, or use one of your own. We will share all of the memes on our Instagram feed and stories throughout finals week!

How to play:

  1. Design your own meme(s) that somehow incorporate video games and finals week. Remember to keep it clean--inappropriate memes submitted will not be published.
  2. Submit your meme(s) by 11:59pm on December 9th.

You can submit your meme(s) by either:

Feeling stressed? Know someone who would appreciate a pick-me-up? Send yourself, a friend, professor, or colleague some love and support in the form of a Finals Week Pet-Gram, courtesy of Hoover Library!

Each pet-gram will feature a photograph of an adorable pet (your choice of dog or cat) in the HooverLib or My Caring Paws families. Include a customized message of your own or have us include a kind and supportive message for you. See the request form below for an example Pet-Gram.

There is no limit on pet-gram request, so send as many as you wish! Requests will be accepted through December 9th at 11:59PM. Pet-Grams will be sent via email OR Instagram Direct Message (DM) on the Monday or Tuesday of Finals Week (12/11 or 12/12).
