Cookies can brighten up anyone's day.

That was clearly apparent as Principal Daniel Woolf and his wife Julie Gordon-Woolf handed out cookies to students at Queen's University on Sunday, in what has become an annual event - the Principal's Cookie Day.

While studying for exams students received a bit of a break and a cookie from the principal. Together Principal Woolf and his wife handed out 1,200 cookies, their most ever, at the university's libraries, including the Education Library and Teacher Resource Centre, Bracken Health Sciences Library, Lederman Law Library, Douglas Library and Stauffer Library.

This marked the fifth year for the cookie drop.

The cookies were sponsored by the Queen's University Alumni Association while the Queen's Student Alumni Association helped bag the treats.
