Freak out!
For many at Western, stress is like a bitter, bitter fruit, never to be eaten unless someone is holding a gun to your head while yelling at you to eat the fruit while jogging on the spot, reciting Shakespeare and writing a statistics exam.
To help alleviate some of the stress students may be experiencing, the University Students’ Council’s Academic Affairs Committee will be setting up a stress relief booth in the University Community Centre atrium, said Don Brodhagen, Arts Students’ Council president and member of the committee.

According to Brodhagen, the booth will be set up in the atrium on Dec. 1 and 2 and will have members of the Student Development Centre and Student Health Services pm sote to answer stress-related questions.

“It’ll be useful for everyone — [there is] a high demand for this,” Brodhagen said, noting the Engineering Students’ Council was pleased with the idea of a stress relief booth because of the average engineering student’s heavy workload.
