Making sure you’re well-nourished means you can focus on studying and preparing for exams, and your students’ association’s SOS team are bringing back the beloved food cart for Exam Relief as a part of our larger Stress Less week programs.

The cart will roams the halls of MRU April 20-24 providing healthy snacks to help you stay focused on your studies and successful in your exams.

The Exam Relief cart will start at 11:00 a.m. and runs until it runs out of food! You can find it:

  • April 20th B Wing, Iniskim Centre, & Exam Gym

  • April 21st EA Building & Exam Gym

  • April 22nd EB Building & Exam Gym

  • April 23rd O Wing, T Wing, & Exam Gym

  • April 24th Y Wing, U Wing, & Exam Gym

Joining the Exam Relief cart during this year’s Stress Less week is also the return of the puppy room, movies, seed planting, creative projects, and even a cushy fort to hide in for a while. All Stress Less programs and activities are free for MRU students.

“This program was created to reduce student stress during a crucial period for students, with the aim of improving academic success” explained Student Outreach & Safewalk Coordinator Jon Heath-Smith. “We hope our stress-reducing programs and services during this time can help alleviate some of the year-end anxiety students experience, before they go back to studying or exams.”  The Student Outreach & Safewalk (SOS) office has taken the lead in organizing a variety of programs for Stress Less week again this year, coordinating the efforts of five SAMRU service centres, and volunteers from PADS who will bring service dogs in-training for warm snuggles, cold noses, and a little bit of canine-assisted stress release.
