De-Stress for Success

Resources to help you relax and succeed!

What is De-Stress for Success?


First things first. Take a deep breath. We're here to help.

We know that stress can take a toll on academic performance and overall health. Add in a short time-frame at the end of every semester when all assignments are due and the whole campus feels tense and overwhelmed. Add in a dash of pandemic, and we're right there with you. That's why every semester JMU Libraries hosts activities to help students, staff, and faculty find release during the stressful final exam season. Activities vary semester to semester, but usually include coloring tables, surprise snacks, and a few mindfulness sessions from our partners on campus.

Follow us on Instagram or Facebook to keep up with the Libraries' relaxation resources.
