How Can SHAW Support You Through Finals?

It’s the end of the semester, and feeling overwhelmed by school, work, social life, and other responsibilities is becoming more frequent than it was just a month ago. It’s time to take your health into your own hands. Thankfully, the Student Health and Wellness has in-person and online options available for students to help navigate finals stress.

The Mindful Space

The SHAW Mindful Space invites students to relax in our massage chairs, use our VR headsets, or soak in the natural lighting of the space. Students can book the space on the 8th floor of the NWQ for 30-minute increments. More information about mindfulness, including additional spaces to practice mindfulness indoors and outdoors can be found on our website.
