Final(s) Countdown: De-stress with fun study breaks @ the Library

It’s 24/5, the last week of classes, the Countdown to Finals Week!  Feeling stressed yet?  The Library’s Final(s) Countdown activities can help you relax, de-stress, and power through your end-of-the-year exams and papers.

According to the New York Times, studies show “taking regular breaks from mental tasks improves productivity and creativity.”   During the last week of classes, you can send a postcard home, play board games with friends, relax with yoga, design a button from recycled book jackets, get zen with origami, or fuel yourself with free coffee and bagels at the Library.

With help from the Wellness Office and ResLife, the Library brings you these fun finals week study breaks:
