Finals Week Stress Relief - Fall Quarter 2018
November 28, 2018

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 Fall 2018, we have crowd favorites returning to the line-up, including Therapy Fluffies, Taco Tuesday and Finals are a Piece of Cake, along with a few new activities.
