Kirby and his #studyhappy work over the past year

Our Study Happy penguin Kirby has become the mascot to students here on campus to promote Study Happy events. Let’s see what he has got up to over the past year…

Study Happy is our Library campaign to help support student learning & development and promote a healthy study-life balance. We hosted a range of events through the year to make sure you’re doing everything you can to stay healthy and happy while you study. Let’s take a look at the highlights of the past year with Kirby as our guide…

Kirby arrived to Warwick in 2014 working on the #StudyHappy campaign.



He became an official member of the University in April 2015 ……..


During this academic year 2014-15 there have been many #studyhappy events for students which have taken place in the Library, Learning Grid Rootes and Learning Grid University House.

Here are some photographs from this years events:

  • PAT dogs


  • Craft making….

Also during the year there have been skills workshops and drop-ins on prezi, presentation skills, iMovie, clinical skills and many others, which were tailored for students and run from both Learning Grid Rootes and The Studio in the Learning Grid at University House.

Kirby has had a busy year and is looking forward to seeing you in the new term at our #Study Happy events. We’d love to hear your suggestions for events for next year so let the Community Engagement team know your ideas!

Either tweet us: @warwicklibrary or email the library:

In the meantime enjoy your summer and see you next year. Don’t forget to let us know where Kirby is spending his summer by tweeting a holiday snap on the hashtag #KirbysTravels
