De-Stress Fest Offers Students Chance to Chill Out Before Finals
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Campus Wellness Center
WRECfit at the Wildcat Recreation Center is providing indoor space and advertisements on the WREC TV screens. The Butte County Humane Society has supplied the puppies. Many students, said Stephanie Chervinko who coordinates De-Stress Fest for the Campus Wellness Center, expressed how much they enjoyed having the puppies on campus.
CSU, Chico joins other colleges nationwide that offer unique stress busters. Other colleges, including Chapman University, Tufts University and Oberlin College, have brought puppies to campus to help lower pre-exam stress.
This is the second year the wellness center has teamed up with WRECfit. WRECfit’s mission is to enrich the overall fitness and wellness of campus and student life with activities such as dance lessons, nutrition counseling and seminars. Its goal is to partner with other groups and departments that also promote healthy lifestyles and are looking for a space that reaches a large number of students every day.
