SAC plans "Relaxation Day"

Looking for a way to relieve yourself of stress during this busy time of the school year, right before midterms? If your answer is “yes,” then the Student Activities Council has got you covered.

This Saturday, March 1, SAC will be putting on a “Relaxation Day” in the Student Union. The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m.

Many things will be happening during the “Relaxation Day.” One of these things will be yoga. This will take place at 1:15 p.m. and will go until the end of the event. Yoga will be taught by Campus Ministry employee Betty Amatangelo.

Another thing that will take place is the Oxygen Bar. This consists of flavored oxygen tanks. This gives off a relaxing scent.

A therapy dog will also be brought in during the “Relaxation Day.” The dog will be brought in by Counseling Center Licensed Psychologist Judy Smith, Ph.D.. The dog, named Bailey, will help students relax by playing with them.

The final thing that will be given during the “Relaxation Day” event will be massages. These will be given by the volunteers from the Athletic Training department.

Student Activities Council Programmar Allyson Gass thinks this event is a good thing for students.

“This event is not only a perfect way for students to relax before midterms, but also to enjoy time with their friends,” she said. “SAC wanted to find a way to help students take a few hours off from their weekend and utilize some of the resources on campus.”

Stop by SAC’s “Relaxation Day” this Saturday at 1 p.m. and help relieve yourself of stress and any anxiety that you may have.
