De-Stress Fest 2021: Better Sleep

Students were treated to a weeklong celebration of relaxation techniques and fun giveaways during De-Stress Fest, held Nov. 29 through Dec. 3. The event was sponsored by the Center for Student Wellness and Counseling Services (CSWCS) with select activities sponsored by Student Services.

The theme of this year’s De-Stress Fest was “Make Peace with Your Sleep.” Activities included a meditation workshop, yoga, distance reiki, relaxation techniques and everyone’s favorite: therapy dogs, generously provided by community volunteers from Wags for Wellness and Best Paws Forward.

The fall De-Stress Fest provides a mental health break for students as they prepare for end-of-term activities and finals.

During the school term, if you are interested in setting up an appointment, have any questions, or need more information, contact the CSWCS at 330-325-6757 or
