Do your studies stress you out?

Posted on: April 28, 2022

We know that stress can take a toll on academic performance and overall health. Add in a short time-frame at the end of every semester when all assignments are due and the whole campus feels tense and overwhelmed. Add in a dash of pandemic, and we’re right there with you.

That’s why every semester JMU Libraries hosts stress—relieving activities to help students, staff, and faculty during the stressful final exam season. Activities vary semester to semester, but usually include coloring tables, surprise snacks, and a few mindfulness sessions from our partners on campus.

For spring 2022, join us for a virtual mediation session and an in-person yoga session, with a little help from our friend Dr. Bryce Hayes in the JMU School of Music.
