Therapy Dogs and Other Ways to get through Finals Week

Humboldt State is providing resources for students during finals week. Students can stop by the MultiCultural Center all week for Finals Food, and relieve some tension with Therapy Dogs at the Library. The furry friends from Therapy Dogs International will be in the Library lobby on Tuesday, May 14 at 1:30 p.m.

Therapy dogs will help students de-stress during finals week.
Staying healthy is important. A simple forest bath in the Arcata Community Forest right behind campus is an easy way to boost your mood. A gym workout at the Student Recreation Center can do a world of good, too. Check the Wellbeing Map, an interactive way to find community, tools, and resources. And contact Student Health and Wellbeing Services for a variety of mental and health physical services and resources.

You can also unwind by visiting the Brain Booth on the Library’s second floor, where you can take some intentional brain breaks with biofeedback, sound and light therapy, VR goggles, coloring, meditation, and other activities. Find the Brain Booth hours on the Library website.

The Learning Center is available for all your academic needs, offering engineering, math, science, and general tutoring, as well as a writing studio and workshops on a variety of academic skills. See all the free services at learning.humboldt.edu, and don’t forget: the Learning Center has moved to the Campus Events Field during the Library Seismic Retrofit Project.

Listed below are some events happening this week.
