Check out our quarterly pre-funk to finals week – BREATHE. This quarterBREATHE events begin Monday, November 28 (with Dr. Roberts and her therapy dog in the PUB Lobby) and wrap up on Friday, December 2 (with yoga in the gymnasium or swimming at a local pool), with our main event happening Thursday, December 1 (events across campus – and make sure you stop by the Counseling Center for free food, crafts, and more)!
Students often report high levels of stress before finals, which can negatively impact their academic performance as well as their physical and mental health. BREATHEaims to reduce student stress as well as connect students to their SCC community. These efforts assist our students with attaining their academic and personal goals.
