Students Needing Study Break Can Borrow Sports Equipment
Illustrations by Ryumi Sung
University Libraries offers more than books, computers and nap-ready chairs to help students succeed. How about a yoga mat, light therapy lamp or hula-hoop as a warmup (or stress reliever) to finals next week?
Studies show that being active improves alertness, attention and motivation. So in addition to laptops, phone chargers and textbooks available year-round, students can borrow all manner of sporting equipment during finals week, thanks to campus partners like University Recreation and Wellness, the University Health Center and BikeUMD.
Above are some of the items available for a brain-boosting study break.
