We know that it isn’t always easy being a young adult, so our Academic Support & Student Welfare and Guidance departments worked together to plan a perfect de-stressing event. The Student Centre was packed with good ideas and fun, but relaxing activities to help reduce those nagging worries.
There were yoga classes, while the less supple could play table tennis nearby. There were relaxing colouring activities and clay modelling. Sports Activation had a stand to show students that they didn’t need to be in a team – or even take their shoes off – to take part in some gentle, or not so gentle, exercise. There was a mindfulness activity to help students focus on their strengths.
A staff member from the LRC was on hand to talk about the benefits of reading, and Learning Support Assistants staffed the National Citizen Service stall to explain how a summer of activity can boost both your confidence and your personal statement. Meanwhile Centre 33 and the college counselling service had a stall to explain how to access carefully-targetted help and what to do in a crisis.
Finally, Dylan the Therapy Dog attracting long queues of people wanting to give him a friendly pat.
