Exam Stress Got You Down? Check Out These On-Campus Stress Busters
The exam period tends to be a time of intense stress and also a time when many student resources are no longer available. Counselling Services, McGill’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (MORSL), and Athletics and Recreation have teamed up to offer students a variety of de-stress activities, scheduled on every exam day (Tuesday April 17 – Monday April 30, 2018).
