In addition to extensive study space, quiet nooks and readily available study materials, students will have yet another reason to study in the library on Thursday, May 3 and Friday, May 4 – free chair massages.
Thanks to the generosity of Trustee Daniel L. Rosensweig ’83 and Chegg, free chair massages will be available in the Rosensweig Learning Commons of the Warren Hunting Smith Library. Massages will be offered from noon to 6 p.m. on both days.
In addition to massages, coffee and energy bars will provide fuel for study in the library atrium during the afternoon of Thursday, May 3.
Massage services are provided by Massage On The Go, a company based in Holbrook, N.Y.
