Beat Exam Stress at UNC Libraries during Week of Balance

By Linda Johnsen December 6, 2017

Cuddle with a therapy kitty. Make a card for patients at the UNC Children’s Hospital. Escape with some virtual reality or scream it all out in front of Davis Library.

Exam time is rough, but Carolina’s libraries are here for you with the Week of Balance. It’s a week of stress-busting events and activities that will help you turn your stress into success. All events are free, thanks in part to the generosity of the Student Library Advisory BoardCATS, Carolina PRSSA, ILSSA, Student Wellness, and the Superhero Project.

If all you need is a place to study, you’ll find extra hours at most campus libraries.
