Exam time can be stressful – a cookie can brighten up anyone's day.

A highly-anticipated tradition during the spring pre-exam study period, Principal Daniel Woolf and Julie Gordon-Woolf handed out 1,500 sugar cookies to students at Queen's University's libraries, including the Education Library, Bracken Health Sciences Library, Lederman Law Library, Douglas Library and Stauffer Library on Sunday, April 9.

This marked the seventh 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.
