The UCR Library is committed to creating a supportive atmosphere for our students, as final exams can breed a lot of stress -- not to mention the added pressures and isolation they experience during a pandemic.
This is the reason why we present our Finals Week Stress Relief (FWSR) event series: to serve and support students at UC Riverside.
This quarter, like spring and fall quarters in 2020, we had to take a different approach due to the campuswide COVID-19 closure, while maintaining our commitment to supporting UCR Students.
Our FWSR committee has curated a fresh list of activities and services that are available online, which we hope R'Students will enjoy, including: Virtual Therapy Fluffies (including live webcam videos from various wildlife organizations and aquariums), Story Time with two of the UCR Library's staff team, guilty pleasures, escape rooms, relaxation, virtual tours, fun and educational videos, and valuable campus resources to support student wellness.
