Hey, Long Beach State! Now that classes are over, the light at the end of the tunnel is almost here. As we look forward to the holiday season, we have to make sure finals week is finished strong and in good health. If you need some help in that department, ASI has you covered.

All throughout the week, resources will be available throughout campus to help you maintain positive mental and physical health. From now through next Tuesday, you can stop by the USU and SRWC to take part in some de-stressing activities such as henna, lanyard making, and aroma therapy, and pick up some free refreshments before and after your finals. For more info on what's going on throughout the week, click here.

In addition to the extended USU hours and other resources provided by ASI, the University Library will be open 24 hours a day during finals week, so feel free to stop by and study whenever is most convenient.

Work hard this week, but be sure to prioritize your personal wellness. The end of finals week will come quick, so make the most of your break. Good job making it through the semester, and congratulations to upcoming graduates! Thank you all for a great term!

Good luck this week - you got this!
