What began as a job to help pay for college and meet new people turned into a bigger reward than Kent State University sophomore Carissa Deeds could have imagined.
The school year is coming to an end and finals, along with the stress that comes with them, are quickly approaching.
Kent State University students, faculty and staff can melt their stress away at the Stress-Free Zone event held by University Libraries on May 5 and 6 from 3-5 p.m. Therapy dogs will return to the first floor of the University Library to help reduce the pressures of finals week and offer a study break to students.
The Kent State University Libraries is marking the 25th anniversary of the Borowitz Crime Collection through a major exhibition and other events held during the 2013-2014 academic year.
Kent State University Libraries will host its Stress-Free Zone event in the library’s lobby on Monday and Tuesday, May 6-7, from 3-5 p.m. The Stress-Free Zone offers members of the university community the opportunity to unwind and ease the stress of finals week.
“It’s a nice distraction from finals,” said Karen Hillman, director of marketing at Kent State University Libraries. “It’s been very successful in the past, and we expect nearly 400 students to attend this semester.”
