Treat Yourself: SPA Relaxation Week

If you’re mad stressed about finals like the rest of us, then SPA has a treat for you! They’ve dubbed this week Relaxation Week and will be hosting activities all week long on the first floor of the HUB. Take a study break any time between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm to lower stress the Martha Stewart way- by crafting.

For those of you who missed it, today’s event was making spin art frisbees. If you did go but left yours there to dry, head to 223 HUB to pick it up sometime this week. Tuesday’s event will be making wax hands. Sounds kind of weird but they actually look very cool (I Googled it)! Wednesday is “street signs.” Students are invited to come on by and make their own personalized street signs. Thursday SPA will be handing out lucky bamboo. Let’s face it, we could all use a bit of luck! Plus, if you don’t need these crafts, they will all make really great and super cheap graduation gifts.

The week comes to a close with a Noontime Student Showcase on Friday. Come on by to support your brave peers as they perform for the entire HUB! Following that will be the event everybody’s been looking forward to- Movin’ On.

Sure we all need to study, but relaxing isn’t a crime. I recommend attending at least one of these activities to reduce stress at some point during the week. You work hard, treat yourself!

DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is arguably the greatest weekend here at Penn State–costume parties and candy, what could be better? Unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive. If you want to do Halloween properly, you have to have at least three clever costumes, because repeating is lame, and not dressing up is even lamer. Pre-made Halloween costumes happen to be incredibly expensive, and pretty much super boring. So, your options are pretty limited. Your best bet is scouring thrift shops and your own closet to DIY your own perfect costumes. Here are a few options that we came up with.
