Finals Week Stress Relief Spring Quarter 2017
June 2, 2017

It’s hard to believe that the 2016-2017 year 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 Surprise Snack Giveaway and Study Jam, as well as a few new activities.
