Puppies, comfort foot, and massages help LWC students through finals

News from Lindsey Wilson College

COLUMBIA, KY - Playing soccer inside of human-size bubbles, petting puppies, massages and a midnight breakfast are among the ways Lindsey Wilson College students are dealing with a week of final examinations.

The activities are sponsored by the college's Student Services offices as a way to help students relieve some of the pressure and stress that come with cramming for finals and writing papers for spring classes.


"We know this can be a time of a lot of stress and anxiety, so it's important to provide our students with a few outlets throughout the week where they can let off some steam for an hour or two and enjoy a study break," said LWC Dean of Students Chris Schmidt. "Our student government leaders and professional staff within Student Services have done a great job of providing students ways to relieve their stress. And some of our faculty and staff also like to take advantage of the services as well, because many of them are also finishing up the school year this week."

On Monday afternoon, students were invited to step into a human-size bubble and play soccer against classmates on the Campus Quadrangle. Later that evening, the Student Alumni Relations Council held a Senior Sendoff of the college's graduating seniors.

Tuesday featured a "Puppy Pit" on the Campus Quad. Sponsored by the LWC Student Government Association and Green River Animal Shelter, the "Puppy Pit" included about a half-dozen of the shelter's canines, whom students could pet and play with throughout the day.

Tuesday evening concluded with the "Midnight Breakfast," which is sponsored by the LWC Office of Residence Life. Held from 11 p.m.-1 p.m. CT in Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center, the semi-annual event offers students comfort breakfast food and fellowship. This spring's "Midnight Breakfast" served 544 students.

Free massages were offered on Wednesday in the Cralle Student Union Building.

LWC will award a total of 210 undergraduate and graduate degrees its 101st commencement ceremony, which will be held at 10amCT Saturday, May 9, 2015 in Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive, Columbia, KY

Kentucky Secretary of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services Audrey Tayse Haynes, who is an Adair County native and Lindsey Wilson alumna, will deliver the spring commencement address. Haynes will also receive an honorary doctorate from LWC, as will trustee emeritus Tom Carter of Danville, KY
