Feb. 22, 2019 LA GRANDE, Ore. – Students in Kelly Rice-McNeil’s Program Planning course this term organized the fourth annual Stress-Less event, which takes place Feb. 28 in Quinn Coliseum.
Strategically scheduled for two weeks before finals, the event entices students with free food,prizes, video games, rock climbing, massage, music, essential oils, and even puppies, pigs and goats to pet.
“This event helps students relax and have fun, but also learn new ways to manage stress in the future and feel more connected on campus,” said Rice-McNeil, a professor in the Physical Activity and Health program at EOU.
Her class focuses on executing effective health events, so students practice promoting, managing and evaluating a large-scale function. They review assessments from the previous year and work to improve it each time. This year’s cohort has introduced a new species of animal, adding goats to the petting zoo.
On-campus resources are also on display, including tutoring, TRiO, the Outdoor Adventure Program and many others. Sodexo sponsors the event’s complimentary spread of snacks.
Stress-Less runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on campus. For more information, visit eou.edu/csi/event/4th-annual-stress-less-event.
