Dealing with the stress of finals week can be tough, but Student Government Association said it wants to help students relax before and during the busy week.
SGA said it wants to make sure every student is relaxed and ready for finals by hosting a relaxation room in the L.A. Pittenger Student Center and a coffee bar in Bracken Library.
The relaxation room will be from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday in the multipurpose room of the Student Center. SGA has partnered with Barnes and Noble to bring free bowling, a free massage therapist, prizes, games and food to students looking for a break from studying.
Junior dance major Heather Closson, who is in charge of organizing the event, said it will take place at a good time for students who are stressed from finals week.
"It gives students a different place to go besides Bracken," she said. "Sometimes it's good to get out of the library."
The coffee bar will be from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday in the lobby of Bracken Library.
Free coffee and hot tea will be given out after the Bookmark Café in the library closes.
Kevin Thurman, a junior telecommunications major, said he thinks coffee is important to students who are studying late. Many do not want to leave the library after the cafe closes, he said.
"It's a service that I feel the students should enjoy," he said.
SGA President Kayla Stanton said she is proud that this Senate is working harder than ever before. Normally, SGA doesn't organize any events the week of finals, but this year it will have three days of events.
"This year's Senate ... is going above and beyond to help students," she said.
Stanton said she wants the event to become a tradition.
"If it goes well, it's going to be a continuous thing," she said.
