Ways to Destress While on Break

Wondering how to destress during a small break or before beginning a new semester?

As a graduate student, you may only get a few short weeks before beginning school or work (or both) at full speed. The Graduate Student Success Center has designed this workshop to help students learn effective ways to destress and get the most out of their time off. Join us to find out new ways to partake in self-care and feel refreshed before beginning the fall semester.
