The Grand Rapids Community College Library is holding an Exam Cram from April 16 to 22.
The event will be held at the GRCC Library in the Learning Center building. The cram offers a quiet atmosphere for students to study for exams, as well as group workspaces and tutoring services. Refreshments will be available throughout the day, including coffee, tea, and comfort food snacks. This event was made possible by the Library and Learning Commons, in partnership with the Student Alliance.
“We try to provide a relaxing environment so students can grab a cup of coffee or a snack and “
continue their work,” said Brian Beecher, Director of Library and Learning Commons.
The tutoring center, located on the second floor of the library, will be ramping up its efforts to help more students during this busy week. Tutoring will be done on a walk-in basis.
The focus of this event is for students to relax and de-stress while they prepare for their exams. As a stress reliever, a printmaking event will be held by CraftSanity owner and GRCC Journalism Adjunct Professor, Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood, on Monday 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
“This event allows us to have conversations, reach out to our students to see how we can help them and make sure they have the tools to succeed,” Beecher said.
The Library’s hours are 7:30 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday And 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The Library will also be open for extended hours on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m both days to increase availability.
