The Office of Student Affairs, along with the Student Program Assistants, have planned events for the University of La Verne’s “Stress Relief Week.”

Michael Houdyshell, coordinator of campus activities and commuter programs, said the purpose of week-long event was to “have a place to have fun and not worry about finals for a couple of hours.”

On Tuesday, there was a volleyball game at the Old Gym from 1-4 p.m. ULV students had the chance to step onto the Old Gym court and play against the school’s faculty.

Among the faculty playing were Brian Tresner, Harvey Good, Rick Simon, Michael Frantz, Mark Nelson and Jeff Burkhart.

There had been six students that originally signed up; however, only four students showed up for the actual game.

“It was an excellent stress reliever,” said junior Jazmin Eckenburg, one of the game participants.

Yesterday, study lounges were set up at Davenport Dining Hall and the Student Center. The study lounge at Davenport Dining Hall was open from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. The Student Center study lounge was from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Free snacks and drinks were provided by Davenport.
