It’s the middle of the semester. Things this year have been stressful for both activities directors and students alike and you finally feel like you’re able to catch your breath. But, we all know that won’t last for long because every college student knows how stressful preparing for finals can be. Between the increased workload and the pressure to do well, finals week can really take its toll. That’s why it’s important for you, as campus event planners to stay ahead of the game and to provide outlets where students can relieve some of that tension. Here are some of our most popular stress relief events for you to schedule for finals week…
