It’s that time of the semester again! If preparing for finals or working on papers and group projects has you overwhelmed, the UGL can help…because it’s time for the Spring semester’s DeStress Fest, and we dare say that this will be the best one yet! Read on to learn more about all of the destressing activities you can participate in this Reading Day, Thursday May 2nd from 12-10pm. Once you spend the day with us you’ll feel like a new person with the power to take on any obstacle that the end of the semester throws your way.
ProCRAFTination will take place throughout the entire day in the New Books Area. Three popular crafts will be returning from previous DeStress Fests and monthly ProCRAFTination nights. Come decorate a pet rock, make a button using our very own button maker, or color in a picture of Uggles and add it to our collage. Board games will also be offered all day in front of the Student Art Gallery, with a range of fun games you can play with us or bring your friends to.
As for our other events, we’re excited to announce a few activities that we’ve never offered at DeStress Fest before. From 12-5 p.m., come play chalk games or hula hoop with us outside the UGL entrance while we listen to some jams. From 3-5 p.m., you can participate in our Instagram-style Photo Booth in the Video Production Studio. Come take a solo or group pic with our DeStress Fest props and frames! For our final special event of the day, we’ll be hosting Jackbox Games in room 289 using our digital monitors and PS4. We’re excited to introduce and welcome back students to these different UGL spaces while having tons of fun!
Lastly, if you weren’t having enough fun already, everyone who participates in DeStress Fest will get a DeStress Fest Reward Card. Participate in at least three events and get your choice of some yummy candy (who doesn’t need a snack break while studying?).
We can’t wait to spend the day with you and help you destress before finals. Also, there may just be a surprise at 8 p.m. in the UGL before DeStress Fest ends.
