Kellogg Community College  is providing students an outlet for some of the pressure they may be feeling in advance of final exams in the form of Stress Busters events scheduled for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 4 and 5.

Activities planned include coloring stations, advising to go, free chair massages from licensed massage therapists, and free snacks, all of which will be offered at two locations on KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek: the atrium near the courtyard of the Roll Health and Administration Building, and the third-floor lobby of the Lane-Thomas Building.

Academic Advisor Michael Houston said the events, which are sponsored by the college’s Student Life Office, are a great way to help students relax before finals, which are usually held around the second and third weeks of December.

“The Stress Busters event is for KCC students and is designed to relieve some of the stress and tension associated with finals week,” Houston said.

Fall Semester classes at KCC end Dec. 17 and Spring Semester classes kick off on Jan. 18.
