Finals Have You Stressed Out? Take a Break With Our De-Stress Tree!

The time has finally come… finals week. Holiday break is just on the horizon, but before we can taste the sweet freedom, we all must conquer finals. It can be a very stressful time! To combat this, the comm department has created this activity to help students manage their stress.


De-Stress Tree: Located in the Lower Level of Knutti

The De-Stress Tree is meant to give students the opportunity to share with each other different ways they kick their stress to the curb. Simply take a leaf from the cup, tell us how you de-stress, and pin it to the board! It may not seem like much, but short breaks can actually help retain information and reduce stress.

The De-Stress Tree is open to all students in and out of the communication department. While you’re busy studying or finishing up that final project, take a trip down to the lower level of Knuitti and fill out a leaf! You can discover ways that your fellow students are coping with stress and maybe even help someone else out.

Check out our Instagram page where we’ve been highlighting creative and fun leaves each day.

Where to find the tree:

Don’t know where the communication department is? It’s in the lower level of Knutti.

  1. Enter Knuitti.
  2. Go to the elevator and select “LL” for Lower Level
  3. Exit the elevator, go through the doors and BAM! The tree will be right in front of you.
  4. tip: While you’re down here, check out the TV studio and meet some friendly comm students and faculty.
