Spring semester’s finals week can be an especially stressful time for students. As they scramble to finish school work or head to a new job or new school, students often give up on healthy eating habits and face-to-face social interactions. Instead, many hide in their rooms with only a computer, textbooks and a box of pizza for company.
George Mason University’s De-Stress Fest, a series of events taking place this week, serves as the perfect opportunity to relax, have fun and mentally recharge before finals, says Melissa Ulmer, assistant director for Student Government.
“Many activities also offer resources and information, such as study tips, stress management techniques, healthy eating information and more—all critical at a time when students are preparing to face added stress,” she says.
