 Stressbusters is back! 

With a mix of virtual and in person events, crafty Bruins can enjoy free origami supplies, coloring pages and puzzles in the Powell Library Rotunda, as well as de-stress with some fuzzy therapy dog friends from UCLA's People-Animal Connection! These activities complement 24/7 study space access to Powell during finals week; a valid BruinCard is required for entry.

In addition, the Library encourages students to explore the end-of-quarter de-stressing activities offered by campus wellness partners including the UCLA People-Animal Connection, UCLA Resilience In Your Student Experience (RISE) Center,  Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC), ASUCLA, and others. See below for the schedule of events.

The Stressbusters Virtual Care Package – created by student workers in spring 2020 and reimagined in each successive quarter – is the cornerstone of the Library’s student support initiatives this fall. Free feel-good films, calming videos, playlists from the Music Library, fun reading suggestions, online games and more encourage mindful breaks from coursework.
