Need a way to keep perspective during exam week? Come build a gingerbread house or cuddle up with a therapy dog at one of UNC’s libraries.

Campus libraries will offer special exam-time diversions to lower your stress level. Extended hours will help you prepare for even the toughest final. Davis Library will stay open until 2 a.m. on most nights, and the Undergraduate Library will add additional overnight hours.

Below is the full schedule of special exam activities for Fall 2013. Good luck with finals, everyone!
