Set the book aside & take a break this week to smile. Thursday is Fall Brew @ the zoo. A 21+ event, it costs $15 for zoo members. Sounds like fun!

Or just take time to go visit the animals. They’re open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. now through February. Check out this Blank Park Zoo video!

And if you can’t possibly take time away from schoolwork this week, but want to see some cute animals and get a good laugh, check out CuteOverload or watch this video my little brother loves.

Photo from which is also good for a cuteness break without leaving your desk or study spot.

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
