This week is finals week at MAIA and our students are busy studying and preparing for their tests! To help teach students about stress management and relaxation techniques, Student Services set up a make-your-own own stress ball table during lunch. Students learned how to make a stress ball as well as how to manage stress during finals week.
During lunch period in between finals, 2 SAs set up a table in the cafeteria where students could stop by and make stress balls and have a cup of tea. They got to choose from a variety of flavors, including calming, zen, energizing, and the most popular, stress reducing tea. A few example stress balls were prepared and instructions were given and SAs helped students make their own.
A few other members of the Student Services team also SAs walked around to generate some interest and pass out bookmarks with stress reducing tips! Overall, it was a successful event and gave the students a chance to relax in the middle of very important Session 3 finals!
