Super Study is Here!

What’s so super about Super Study? Let us count the ways.

Super study spaces and support:

  • Extended hours. Starting Sunday, 4/24, we’re open 24 hours a day during the week, plus extra hours on the weekends. View the full schedule here.
  • Research help from the Lewis librarians. Anytime the Library is open (including overnight), you can get help from a librarian in person or via email, phone, text, or online chat. You can find all of our contact information here.
  • Individual and group study spaces. The Library offers a variety of study furniture options, from our whiteboard tables for collaborative work to our wall-facing study carrels for when you really need to minimize distractions. You can also go online and reserve one of our four group study rooms, or just drop in and see if one is available.

Super stress relief:

  • Free coffee and hot chocolate anytime the Library is open (while supplies last, of course!).
  • Drop-in stress-relief strategies sessions, from meditation to time management, offered throughout Super Study by the Center for Health & Counseling.
  • Study break activities, including board games, jigsaw puzzles, coloring, and more. The Stress Relief Room will be open from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday of both weeks.
  • A visit from Tippi the therapy dog. She’ll be in the Library from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, 5/3.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s … Super Study!

Super study overview color

It’s that time again! The end of the semester is upon us, along with all of the papers, projects, and final exams that come with it. Wondering how you’ll make it through the next two weeks? Never fear—Super Study is here!

What’s Super Study, you ask? Why, it’s a program that provides Lewis students with services and support during these important but stressful last weeks of the semester.

Here at the Library, Super Study means:

  • Expanded hours: We’re open around the clock each week from 10 a.m. Sunday through 7 p.m. Friday. We also have extended hours on Saturday (9 a.m. to 9 p.m.).
  • Research assistance: Whenever the Library is open, there are research librarians here to assist you. If you’re not in the building, you can contact them via phone, chat, text, and email for real-time research help.
  • Study space: In addition to the tables, study carrels, couches, and whiteboard tables throughout the Library, we also have four group study rooms that can be reserved up to 2 weeks in advance. Go to lewisu.libcal.com to book yours before they’re gone!
  • Refreshments: Free coffee and hot chocolate in the vestibule vending area (while supplies last).

So far, so good, but we also understand that students need a break. So we’ve designated an area of the Library for stress relief and study breaks. From 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. every weeknight, the Library Media Classroom (behind the Research Desk) will become the Stress Relief Area. Inside, you’ll find board games, puzzles, coloring sheets and crayons, origami, and more. We’re also planning a midnight popcorn break on Monday, 12/14 and a visit from Tippi the therapy dog on Tuesday, 12/15.

For more information on Super Study hours, services, and activities throughout campus, visit the LARC website.

Good luck on your finals! See you in the Library!
