There’s no denying it, the weeks that follow Thanksgiving, leading up to the promise of Winter Break, are a stress filled journey of papers, projects, and tests. Juggling these due dates can quickly get overwhelming, so it’s important that you stop and take a break. The Andersen Library is here to help you do just that! From December 3 until December 20, there will be daily activities, offering several opportunities to take a quick break from the stress of finals, and rejuvenate your motivation.
Collaborating with several organizations across campus, the Andersen Library is excited to offer Relax Snax, with University Heath and Counseling Services (UHCS), Paint and Sip, with the Student Art Association (SAA), and an NBA 2K19 Tournament, partnered with and hosted at Warhawk Alley. As always, Pet Therapy will continue, increasing in frequency as we approach finals week.
Likewise, through several hands-on activities, there are many opportunities to allow your mind a much-needed break, whenever you need it. Make sure to visit our Stress Navigation Station to reevaluate your own, personal stress-coping mechanisms, and take a moment to color a picture, or complete a word search.
Navigating stress can be difficult, especially when schedules are stretched to the max and taking a break seems like an unproductive waste of time. But by allowing your mind a little time to relax, even just for a few moments, motivation and productivity will return, making finals week just a little bit easier.
We look forward to seeing you here, at the Andersen Library. Best of luck with finals!
