Spring Break and Peaceful Pursuit Ideas

With Spring Break here, the University Libraries is happy to offer ways to relax both the mind and spirit away from the classroom.

Students who are on campus during Spring Break can visit our Wellness Room located on the Fourth Floor of Walsh Library. Funded by a Great Minds Dare to Care grant, the Wellness Room is a private and quiet space that offers a calming environment designed to help lower stress along with improving the mental health and well-being of Seton Hall students. More information can be found here – Wellness Room

In addition, through the vision of Junior Social Work major Ms. Emily Montanez, the University Libraries has created a Leisure Collection of readings that showcases several interesting and inspirational titles. These books can be found in the Reference Section, located on the Second Floor of Walsh Library. More information about this initiative can be found here – Destress Over Spring Break With Leisure Reading

During Spring Break Week, The University Libraries will be closed from Saturday to Sunday, March 4-5 and on Saturday, March 11. Walsh Library will open from Monday, March 6 through Friday, March 10 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and resume normal hours on Sunday, March 12 at 11:00 a.m.
