LA GRANDE, Ore. February 27, 2017 – Midterms and finals got you straining? Eastern Oregon University is helping students decompress with its annual “Stress-Less Event” Wednesday, March 8. 

There will be free food and door prizes, yard games and Ping Pong, rock climbing, “chill zones” and massage, music, essential oils, yoga and Zumba demonstrations – even puppies and pigs to play with – all from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Quinn Coliseum on campus. 

“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 Kelly Rice, one of the organizers and assistant professor of physical activity and health at EOU. 

“We are also providing students an opportunity to learn more about some of the resources at EOU that can help, such as tutoring, counseling, TRiO and even outdoor recreation,” Rice added. “So if you want to grab some free food and find out about support services, or are just curious how we will hold kayak races in the grass, you should come to this event!”

For more information contact Rice at krice@eou.edu or 541-962-3413.

EOU’s food service partner, Sodexo, is donating the food for the activity.
