Finals Week Stress Relief: Winter 2020 event series
February 14, 2020

February is drawing to a close, and with it the end of winter quarter 2020. Final exams are only a few weeks away.

The 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 (FWSR) 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.

Finals Week Stress Relief will kick off on Wednesday, March 11, 2020. The full event schedule will include:
