Visit the Relaxation Station During Exams

Librarians Melissa Strickland and Allison Jones have created a quiet space where students can relax during exams. Feeling tense? How about spending 5 minutes rolling out PlayDoh with a miniature rolling pin. Need to unclog your brain and calm your thoughts? Try coloring a picture using metallic pencils. These are just a couple of the fun tasks that you can do at the Relaxation Station, which is located on the second floor of the library, just across from Reference Row. Enjoy!
