Stress Less Week


Students tend to take on additional stress towards the end of the fall and winter semesters, when term papers, projects, last-minute assignments and finals prep are all coming to a head. That’s why SAMRU hosts Stress Less Week twice a year to give you that little extra boost you need to make it through to your last final.

Stress Less Week means that tons of great programming will pop up all around campus catering to student needs – programming like massages and yoga, crafting sessions, a roaming exam relief cart loaded with snacks and of course, the legendary Puppy Room.

All Stress Less programs and activities are free, so you can refresh your body and mind without leaving campus or spending a dime!

We’ll post the full Stress Less Week schedule here once we’ve confirmed all the programming, so you’ll always know when you can catch a movie in the Fort Room or where you can snag a sandwich off the exam relief cart.
