Nap Stations are held on Mondays and Wednesdays every week. Mondays are for Graduate Students only and Wednesdays are for Undergraduate Students only. They are from 3:30-5pm in Building 434 Room 147. Our Nap Station provides students a safe, comfortable and cozy place to nap in the center of campus. Note: Nap stations are not available during week 10 and finals week.

Community Mindfulness Practice happens on campus every Tuesday and Friday. Each session is quick enough to fit in your busy schedule, but effective enough to feel the mindfulness benefits throughout the week!
