Finals are stressful; there's no two ways about it. Luckily, Binghamton understands the #struggle that students are going through. That's why the Dean of Students Office is happy to bring back its annual Stress-Free Bing initiative. Stress-free Bing starts on April 15, with events happening nearly every day, all over campus. Check out some of the highlights!
