6 Fun Ways for Binghamton Students to De-Stress This December

Posted by Kim Washington on November 27, 2018

Finals are just around the corner, and thankfully there are many resources available to help you end the semester off with a bang! Here are some enjoyable activities, on and off campus, to get your mind off of finals and to help you relax. I know my favorite way to de-stress is catching up on my TV shows or indulging in some self-care. Whether you’re cramming an all-nighter in the library or at home, you always do your best work when your mind is clear!

Get a massage

Harpur Edge is providing munchies and massages. Stop by to get some snacks and a chair massage! First come, first served -- so plan ahead.
