Finals Week Stress Relief - Winter 2019
March 6, 2019

It’s hard to believe that Winter Quarter 2019 is already drawing to a close, but suddenly we find ourselves with Finals Week 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.
