With the upcoming holidays, everywhere around us are songs and commercial advertisements stating that this is the most wonderful time of the year. We know that between work, projects, papers, and studying for finals, however, that sitting back and relaxing is just difficult to do. Indeed, a study by UCLA in 2010 reported record levels of emotional stress in students during this time of year. So you could try the ‘Stress Reduction Kit’ below, or better, you could come over to the Calvin T. Ryan Library to ‘de-stress’! Beginning today, December 9th, and continuing through finals week, you can visit the Loper Oasis on the main floor of the Library. Come enjoy board games, candy, pop, and much more. Bring your friends or come and meet new ones! Whatever you do, if even just for a few minutes, come over and unwind with some care-free, stress-free moments! Good Luck on finals!
