Finals Week Stress Relief spring 2018
May 18, 2018

It’s hard to believe that another academic year is drawing to a close, but suddenly Finals Week for spring quarter 2018 is only days away.

UCR Library remains committed to creating a supportive atmosphere to help our students cope with the stress of final exams, which is why we present our Finals Week Stress Relief event series at the end of fall, winter and spring quarters.

These events give library employees an opportunity to get to know our students better, and for our students to let off steam together in a safe and fun way.

For spring 2018, we have crowd favorites returning to the line-up, including Therapy Fluffies, Surprise Snack Giveaway and R'Finals Study Jam, along with a few new activities.
