SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
As finals week creeps up on us students, we’re faced with two things: the need to study everything and write every paper ever assigned, and the desire to blow it all off.
Now, some of us have our heads on straight enough where we can brush aside that idea of being a defiant little kid and just saying “no.” We can sit down, crack open our books, and fill up five Word documents about culture and Shakespeare.
However, not all of us are like that. A lot of us feel the pressure, and need to blow a little steam off in order to make room for all of that academic thinking.
Fortunately, UNH understands its students’ need for a little breather. Starting Tuesday, May 8, Frazzle-Free Finals begins in the Dimond Library. This event includes activities for students to participate in which help ease the pressure that finals week puts on many of us.
One of the events, and hands down the best one, is the 5-minute massage. In the New Book Room of the library, room 301, licensed massage therapists from Health Services will be giving chair massages. But you have to sign up at 12:45 pm that day, as they start at 1:00 pm and only go until 3:00 pm.
There will also be Guided Meditation in the Library from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm.
Too hyped up on Redbull and coffee to meditate? You can be part of a Flash Dance to help get that excess energy out of your system. Shake it out at 11:45 pm in the Murkland Courtyard.
As if Tuesday’s events weren’t enough, Wednesday brings us some furry animals to be our study buddies. They’ll be located in various locations in Dimond Library all day, from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm.
Chair Massages will be available again, same place and times as Tuesday. Grab seconds, or if you haven’t taken advantage of one yet, stop being a fool and go get your first massage.
A Cookie Break will be held from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm on level four of the library, so you can get a sugar high that might help you with those last few paragraphs of that paper.
Thursday will bring in the return of the furry animals in the library, as well as introduce a granola-and-yogurt bar, and some relaxing yoga.
