'Tis the Season of Finals

‘Tis the season of finals, which means you’re probably not singing “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” just yet. Although you may be dreading the next couple of weeks, there are in fact perks to finals season!

1) Feeling stressed? Need a 30min break?

Get active and feel relaxed with the $15 UBC Recreation Yoga Pass and get unlimited access to daily yoga classes from December 1-15th!


2) Studying in the same spot again?!

Why not try somewhere new and while you’re at it try out a standing desk! Standing while studying can help improve concentration and reduce neck and back pain.
Not sure where to go? Try out the standing desks found in:

  • Scarfe Building: Education Library
  • Life Building: Kitty-corner to Subway
  • The Nest: Upper levels overlooking the ground floors
  • Woodward: Near the windows on the main floor of the library or basement level
  • ICICS Computer Science Building: When entering by Pacific Poke on the far left against the windows
  • Irving K. Barber: 3rd floor of the library or when coming from the main staircase on the right in the hallway near the washrooms


3) It’s the holiday season, which means campus is lit… literally!

Enjoy the beautiful lights displayed around campus with an on-campus run. It’s not all year that you can run down main mall and through Westbrook village with Christmas lights lighting your way!

4) On your way to a week-long bubble tea and McDonald meal streak?

Try out a 5 ingredient and 5 minutes max meal to change it up!


Still dreading finals? I’d beg to differ! Try out the above tricks and tips and you’ll be finishing finals with a smile.
