University Libraries Hosting De-Stress Fest During Finals Week

The Penn State University Libraries will be holding “De-Stress Fest” during finals week. These finals week activities will take place Sunday through Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will feature activities focused on reducing levels of stress for students working their way through final papers and exams.

Students interested in de-stressing can stop by the Mann Assembly Room and 103 Paterno to take part in the activities, which include coffee, snacks, games, and more. The first-floor lobbies of the Patee and Paterno Libraries will have Wii games, bean-bag toss boards, and puzzles.

HealthWorks will even be hosting a “De-Stress Zone” fully equipped with relaxing music, stress management books, and more from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Branch libraries at University Park will also be partaking in the activities. The Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library will host an origami workshop all day from Tuesday through Thursday. The Fletcher L. Byrom Earth and Mineral Sciences Library, the Engineering Library, and the Physical and Mathematical Sciences Library will be hosting similar events.

You can find an extended schedule for the De-Stress Fest Activities here.
