Hodges Library Pro-Tip

Regardless, you should be studying for finals—but make sure you stop by Hodges during finals week! The Dean of Students serves up a pancake bar for late night studying and UT partners with local kennels so students can relieve stress by petting therapy dogs! It’s the place to be.
