Counseling and Psychological Services helped students relieve stress with a pumpkin smashing event in McKinnon Plaza.

Counseling and Psychology Services helped students blow off some steam during the spooky mid-term season with a positively smashing event, Oct. 25, in McKinnon Plaza. Students were invited to write their stressors on a pumpkin and then take a (baseball) bat to them! Outside of the splash zone, CAPS shared additional resources regarding stress awareness and healthy stress relief strategies.
