Don't worry, parents, your child is in the library

The Cofrin Library and University Advancement partnered in a cute little activity for students. They created postcards from the library that students can fill out just to reassure their parents that they are indeed studying for finals. One has a checkbox method with choices such as "Thank You" and "I can't wait to graduate." The other is 'fill-in-the blank' style... "Dear ______I just wanted to say________." Presumably, they're filling the blanks with words of gratitude. Story and photo gallery.
