The Barnes & Noble University Bookstore will host a finals week de-stress fest Wednesday, May 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will feature puppies and other pets from the Toledo Area Humane Society and Nature’s Nursery, as well as free massages and manicures.
“We have some surprises in store with a visit from Nature’s Nursery, a local wildlife rehabilitation center. They are coming by with some exotic animals,” said Colleen Strayer, general manager of the bookstore.
Students also will have the opportunity to create a card and decorate a potted flower as a Mother’s Day gift.
By completing crafts and games, students can earn entries into a raffle drawing to win gift cards and other prizes.
“Students need to manage the stress of finals week, and Barnes & Noble on campus is helping them to do just that,” Strayer said.
