Events and Freebies Helped Students to “Spring” Into Finals Week
By Alex Bender & Ashley Olson
May 2-6 featured events and giveaways on Cambridge campus for the annual spring semester Stress Relief Week. Throughout the week, many of the campus’ clubs and organizations hosted exciting events for all students to help lessen the oncoming storm of stress and worry that culminates in the last week of the semester.
The week started off with an event called Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles, which included bubble wrap to pop, bubble gum to chew, and blowing bubbles to play with, which were available to students on a table.
Also on Monday, May 2, the Student Senate’s hosted a water balloon fight, which was a huge success, despite the cool temperatures outside, that left everyone who attended drenched.
On Tuesday May 3, Cambridge campus held a spring picnic outside as part of Stress Relief Week. The picnic was held from 11 AM – 1 PM and the 70-degree weather complimented the event well. The picnic consisted of burgers with all the fixings, potato chips, baked beans, chocolate chip cookies, and lemonade/fruit punch. The picnic items were free for students, as well as a photo booth that was stationed near the cafeteria. Cambridge campus hosts a free picnic once each semester.
Wednesday, May 4 included free screen printing on t-shirts and free massages and aroma therapy, as well as reiki for anyone who needed to relax before finals.
On Thursday, May 5, the diversity club hosted a Diversity Forum, during which time people came to learn and connect over different ways of life. Additionally, an event called Noodle Ninja allowed students to express some frustration through safer and softer means. The Hearts Ablaze club hosted a movie night that offered free subs and sundaes and fun for all.
Lastly, free popcorn ended stress relief week on Friday, May 6
