The University Health Center invited us to participate in their Stress Free Zone events during Dead Week. We were at the East Campus Union on Tuesday and in the City Union Crib on Wednesday. The Health Center had lots of fun activities for students to do such as a photo booth, gift bag decorating, and ornament decorating. They also had lots of yummy treats as well as free chair massages! The chair massages were a big hit with students.
We had a table with handouts on stress management in relation to finances, homemade gift ideas, homemade food gift ideas, and a holiday spending budget worksheet. You can see and print some of these handouts on our Holiday Financial Hub webpage: http://www.unl.edu/smmc/your-holiday-financial-hub We also had a drawing for an SMMC “swag bag” full of free SMMC goodies and personal finance tips. Lastly, we had some free apple chip samples so students could have a healthy snack. If you’d like the recipe, it’s on our homemade food gifts handout on our holiday financial hub webpage! We had a lot of fun meeting students and giving them a little surprise during Dead Week.
