Relaxathon is on!

It’s the week of final exams, and the stress is real! For some, this marks the week where the two 6-page papers and 30-minute group presentation tops the agenda, alongside actual exams. Well, don’t worry, because Relaxathon is on at the Andersen Library!

Relaxathon—a three-week-long stress-relieving outlet made available to students before and during finals week—has begun and continues until Dec. 21. There are events and interactive stations made available to students to utilize as forms of escapism. Spoken word, artistic expression and self-reflection characterize many of the outlets made available.

    All these activities from Relaxathon sounds like so much fun! I want to run my own Relaxathon in Chicago! On my agenda for tomorrow: 1) sleep in 2) watch youtube videos with interpretations of Last Jedi 3) mop the basement floor.

    Yeah, the last one is not a Relaxathon event, but something I need to do.
