University Libraries Provides Stress-Free Zone for Finals Week

By Kate Schwanke

The Stress-Free Zone will return to the Kent State University Library on Monday, May 9, and Tuesday, May 10, from 3-5 p.m. to give students a break from studying for finals. The much-loved Dogs on Campus Pet Therapy Program® will be back once again, and snacks and beverages will be provided.

Karen Hillman, director of marketing, communications and public relations for University Libraries, says the Stress-Free Zone is one of the most popular events for students.

“Students are encouraged to take a break from their studies, pet the dogs and enjoy popcorn and beverages,” Hillman says. “Even passers-by can’t help but smile at the dogs.”

Students will be able to participate in multiple activities that include coloring books and crafts. The Student Multimedia Studio will have a 3-D pen demonstration where participants can create a miniature daisy flower. There will be a 3-D printer and Leap Motion software on display as well.

The University Library will be open 24 hours during finals week.
