Free coffee and cookies at Jafet Library during Final exams

In News and Announcements by AUB Libraries / December 10, 2016 / 0 Comments

This article was posted on the AUB website’s News section on December 10, 2016: http://www.aub.edu.lb/news/2016/Pages/jafet-finals.aspx

In an attempt to help students cope with the stress and strain of final exams, Jafet Library, which opens 24 hours a day during the reading period, is providing them with free coffee and cookies every night. The finals period, the time when students maximize their efforts to successfully wrap up their semesters, extends over two weeks from the December 7 to 20.

“Students wait eagerly for the coffee every night at 11:00pm and stand in line to have turns to fill their cups and grab a cookie,” said Lokman Meho, Director of the University Libraries, “we decided to serve the coffee and cookies from 11:00pm to 7:00am because the Main Gate closes at 11:00.”

Even if Main Gate closes at 11:00 pm, the Libraries are providing the students an opportunity to study for longer hours in specially equipped rooms, doing everything to maintain the studious and silent atmosphere. This initiative is taken in an attempt to provide the students with a better mood to study and focus, contributing to bettering their experience on campus.

“These are small gestures that demonstrate the President’s commitment to caring for our students. Studying for finals is tough enough and every little bit helps,” said Ramin Sedehi, Chief Operating Officer.

Associate Vice President of Advancement Services, Mrs. Soha Hmaidan, highlights that the initiative taken by Jafet Library is fully funded by the University’s strategic partners who have been funding all the events on Campus in celebration of our 150th anniversary.

“This funding is not from our operating budget, so it’s not coming out of the students’ tuition fees,” added Hmaidan.

Carla Chalhoub, Head of Access Services Department, said the initiative is helping students feel at home.

“They usually are not allowed to drink and eat on the Library premises, but we are making an exception,” added Chalhoub, “it is hard for students pulling an overnight to go out in the cold to buy snacks, so it’s a gesture to make it easier for them.”

Staff members at the Library are getting great response from the students. Avo Dakessian, a sophomore student majoring in Nursing, thought that the idea was “brilliant.”

“Things such as those are motivational, and I think that this should be done often,” said Dakessian.

Youssef Hamade, a student majoring in electrical engineering told us that Jafet is his main destination to study during finals.

“The fact that it is open 24/7 during reading period makes it my go-to when I want to pull an all-nighter, and the fact that no talking is allowed, makes it excellent for concentrating,” said Hamade. “The free cookies and coffee are an added value, the hassle of going out can now be avoided; it’s a chance to maximize our attentiveness on our studies.”
