Stress less June 2020 UCTV

Date: Tuesday, June 2, 2020 to Friday, June 5, 2020

Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Venue: Haere-Roa

It’s study break again, a time to hit the books (and probably a coffee or three). To help get you through, the UCSA is here with Stress Less Week, a week of giveaways and activations to help you unwind and stay well.

A heads-up that Haere-roa is also being kitted out with more tables and comfy seats during the study break, so head over if you’re looking for somewhere to hit the books.
