Snacks, stress management and therapy dogs coming for Finals Week

Chyna James

As the semester comes to an end and students begin to prepare for final exams, Eagle Dining and Health Services will provide ways to refuel and gear up during exam week.

Stress Less Wagon

Health Services will walk a “Stress Less Wagon” through the library during the days of finals week at 4 p.m. and 10 p.m, according to a Health Services representative.

The wagon will contain snacks, and staff members will provide techniques to help with sleep and stress management to get through the long week of testing.

Health Services staff will also facilitate a short meditation, breathing, progressive relaxation and stretching workshop on the first floor of the library so students can take a short break from studying at 4:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Midnight Breakfast

When students need to take a study break or grab something to eat, Midnight Breakfast will offer breakfast items like waffles, omelets and biscuits.

“We know that our students can be very stressed out come finals week,” Greg Crawford, director of residential dining for Eagle Dining Services, said in a press release.

“That’s why we want to give our students that need a break from studying a place to come and get a nice meal and relax for a few moments,” Crawford said.

The Midnight Breakfast will be at the beginning of finals week on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from 11:59 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.

The event is included in the Eagle Dining plan. It will cost $8.75 for everyone else.

Therapy Dogs

Circle K International (CKI) is sponsoring Therapy Dogs in the Henderson Library lobby Monday Dec. 5 to Dec. 7 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The therapy dogs will be there to provide affection and comfort during finals week.
