It’s the most stressful time of the semester: finals week. Piles of books to be studied, papers to be written, and presentations to prepare become our #1 priorities, and we all go into “study mode.” Computer labs and library cubicles fill, sleep takes a back seat, and Starbucks makes a killing. How does St. Rose help us cope? They give us the Stress Free Zone.
The stress free zone is held in the Main Lounge on campus. It is a place to relax and forget about the stresses that come along with this time of year. It is sponsored by the Counseling Center, but other clubs and departments are present, too. Take a look at some of the things my friends and I did while we were there:
Other activities include “Shred your Dread” in which students were welcomed to destroy old school work or write down something that was stressful, ice cream from Stuarts, balloon animals, and more!
