Finals Week Stress Relief: Spring 2019 Event Series
May 24, 2019

Spring quarter 2019 is drawing to a close, and with it the end of the 2018-2019 academic year. Finals Week is only days away.

UCR Library is committed to creating a supportive atmosphere for our students, as final exams can breed a lot of stress. That 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 the Therapy Fluffies, R'Finals Study Jam, and Surprise Snack Giveaway, as well as a few new activities.
