student receives massage

A student receives a free five-minute massage during finals week in spring 2012.

Each year around this time, students often feel a shivering chill in the air. While it can be attributed to winter rolling in, it’s most likely the fact that finals are on the horizon.


From Dec. 10-14, those looking for a warm and welcoming shelter from the chill can stop by the University Student Union and enjoy free massages, henna tattoos, and spin and sand art.


A special treat this year will be the presence of therapy dogs available for petting and playing on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at the West Patio (near the escalators).


“It has been documented that pets can improve your mood and reduce stress,” said USU Program Council Assistant Ebonee Carter. “Therapy dogs are perfect for students this time of year.”


Also on Wednesday, the ASI is hosting a book drive for “Helping a Child Read.”


Associated Students, Inc. staff will also be on hand to offer stressed students free nutritious and tasty snacks, coffee and energy drinks from 7 AM to 6 PM. At 7 PM Monday through Friday, free food from USU vendors will be handed out while supplies last.


Since every minute counts during exams, the USU will extend its hours leading up to and during finals week. The following hours will be in effect from Saturday, Dec. 8 to Friday, Dec. 15.


Saturday 7 AM—Midnight

Sunday Noon—Midnight

Monday-Wednesday 7 AM to 2 AM

Thursday-Friday 7 AM—Midnight


A popular study spot, the University Library will also offer longer hours before and during finals week. The library will host 24-hour service beginning Sunday, Dec. 2 at 12:30 PM and will close at 5 PM on Friday, Dec. 14.


The pressure of finals can be overwhelming for many college students, but with a little help from ASI, students can manage the stress.
