Final Exam Stress? The Bookstore’s Got You Covered

July 01, 2015

Campus bookstores held De-Stress Fest events throughout the country during final exam week.


The closing weeks of the school year can be extremely challenging for students, especially with studying for final exams, graduation, and moving out of dormitories and apartments to head home for the summer. This spring, Barnes & Noble College campus bookstores helped ease that strain with De‐Stress Fest events held nationwide. The events allowed students to take a break from studying and unwind with fun and relaxing activities.

The De-Stress Fest events differed on each campus and included chair massages, petting zoos, games, movie night, photo booths, puppies, food and refreshments.
