during finals week. 

Kent State University Libraries will host its Stress-Free Zone event in the libraries lobby on Monday and Tuesday, May 6-7, from 3-5 p.m. The Stress-Free Zone offers members of the university community the opportunity to unwind and ease the stress of finals week.

“It’s a nice distraction from finals,” says Karen Hillman, director of marketing at University Libraries. “It’s been very successful in the past, and we expect nearly 400 students to attend this semester.”

Popcorn and drinks will be provided, and attendees can take time to relax by playing Wii games and more. Pet therapy dogs also will return this year. All Kent State students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the event.
