iBASE volunteers plan a stress management event for UWaterloo students

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Good luck on your exams, UWaterlooThe end-of-term can be a stressful time for everyone.  On August 11, student volunteers from UWaterloo's Intensive Bridge to Academic Success in English (iBASE) program will be hosting activities on campus to help Waterloo students unwind, smile, and relax! 

During the term, iBASE students were invited to join a volunteer committee, called the iBASE Rep team. Each week, the group of more than 30 students met alongside a team of 13 dedicated peer helper volunteers, who are upper-year UWaterloo students from all six Faculties. Together, the students work to plan a stress management event on campus for students during their final exams. 

The volunteer team plans to host activities in three areas of campus. 

At the Davis Centre Library:
» Make Your Own Slime
» Reni Moose Hugs
» Adult Colouring Pages

At the Dana Porter Library:
» Bubble Wrap Station
» King Warrior Hugs
» Friendship Ball Pit

At the Peter Russell Rock Garden:
» Pillow Joust Fights
» Healthy Snacks Giveaways (granola bars, trail mix, etc.) 

Visitors are welcome to pop by to join the festivities, as well as RSVP on the Facebook event page. Kind thanks to the University of Waterloo libraries for their partnership in this event. 

Enjoy the fun, UWaterloo - you've earned it! We will see you there.
