Stress relievers during final exams are fine, say Utah State University administrators. But a group howl in the school library? Maybe not.
The student government will consider a request to sanction a finals week howl, something that started last spring when a group of students tried to break the tension by howling like wolves.
The students thought it was effective and called for another howl last semester. They sounded off again — in the Merrill-Cazier Library.
“We went back to the library because we figured that was the place where the most people would be during finals week,” said Eric DeFries, an organizer, who wants the university to adopt the howl as a school tradition. But the effort may have a better chance if it’s held somewhere other than the library.
