UGL Destress Fest: Spring 2017

It’s the end of the year and finals are quickly approaching. Reading Day is Thursday, and the UGL has decided to throw an all-day Destress Fest, to give you a chance for a study break! Starting at 12pm and going until 12am, there will be crafts, writing and research help, counseling, dogs, and much more! Check out our schedule, below:

12pm-2pm — It’s Craft Time! 

There will be crafts in the “Craft Corner,” including making hats, origami, and more!

1pm-2pm & 6pm-7pm — “Breathe, Relax, Focus: Simple focusing strategies for writing” 

This session about writing tips will be held within the Writer’s Workshop in room 251.

2pm-4pm — UGL Paw Party!

The UGL will be visited by a furry friend or two! Come over near the Student Art Gallery on the Upper Floor of the UGL to pet a dog and forget about all of the finals frenzy. There will even be a cute Snapchat Filter that the UGL has created especially for these two hours! Use #UGlPawParty and the UGL may re-tweet or re-gram your photo with a furry friend!

2pm-4pm & 7pm-9pm — Counseling Center 

The Counseling Center will have a table up at the front of the library. Stop by for some resources and a friendly face to talk to!

4pm-7pm — “Let It Go: Toss Your Study Stress!” by the Writer’s Workshop
