Destress Fest is a university-wide initiative that takes place over the last two-three weeks of each semester leading into the final exam period. This series of events is coordinated by Community Standards and includes individual programs hosted by departments across campus. Programs are designed to help students manage stress, learn about support resources and socialize with peers during this high-volume time period in the semester. Destress Fest begins with a kickoff, typically held during a free period, and includes staple programs such as Pancake Breakfast as well as massage therapy dates and grab and go snack stations.
