The holiday season is rapidly approaching, which means final exams for the fall semester are just a few short weeks away. Several campus partners are taking it as an opportunity to come together and offer stress relief activities for students during finals week, Dec. 9-13.

Students can participate in stress relief activities during finals week in Cooper Library.

In partnership with Robert M. Cooper Library, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and the Office of Advocacy and Success will be offering a helping hand for students needing a study break between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

“We believe students can take some time to de-stress during finals week in five minutes or less,” said Tyrome Philson, senior CARE case manager for Advocacy and Success. “It’s important for students to take a break mentally. These activities are designed to be quick and fun and will give them an opportunity to take a step back and re-focus on their studying.”

Each day will offer different stress relief activities in Room 416 — also known as the Brown Room — just to the right as you enter the main lobby area of the library. Included among the available activities will be coloring, drawing, essential oils, interactive games, meditation, DIY (do it yourself) stress balls, video games and a meme inspiration station.
