Finals Week Stress Relief Winter Quarter 2018
February 28, 2018

It’s hard to believe that winter quarter 2018 is drawing to a close, but suddenly Finals Week is only days away.

UCR Library is committed to creating a supportive atmosphere to help our students cope with the stress of final exams. This is why we present our Finals Week Stress Relief event series at the end of every quarter.

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.

This quarter, we have crowd favorites returning to the line-up, such as Therapy Fluffies, Surprise Snack Giveaway, R'Finals Study Jam, as well as a few new activities.
