Relief offered for finals week stress

The final two weeks of a college semester can be some of the most stressful weeks of a college student’s life.
Studying for and performing the actual exam can decide whether a student passes a class or not.
It has major implications on one’s future, no matter where one’s standing is in classes.
That is why LCC’s Student Life Office and the LCC Library are holding activities to help prepare and ease the stress students are expected to experience.
Starting Monday, Dec. 5, students can show up to Student Life or the LCC Library to gather supplies such as pens, pencils, highlighters, notecards and paper. Supplies will be handed out until they are gone.
The library staff will also hand out LCC Fitness Center passes to be used from Dec. 5 to 19.
The following week, starting Monday, Dec. 12, students can pick up snacks and refreshments at the same places.
“The first week is sort of about getting the supplies you need to be able to study and prepare,” said Renee VanDeventer, Student Life office manager and student organization specialist. “From then, it is just about trying to help the students relax.”
LCC student Hannah Ware said preparing for final exams is something that is stressful but exciting to get over with.
“You know when finals are coming up that, yes, you are going to be stressed out for a few weeks,” Ware said. “But at the same time, I can’t wait to be happy to get them over with and be able to get into break.”
