The end of the semester, especially the end of the school year can be stressful. Class work adds up and time slips away. It becomes more and more important for your physical and mental health to take a step away from the stress and relax for a while.
For some, relaxing may be curling up with a good book or movie while others may want a break outdoors with their friends. Whatever your relaxing style may be, there are a few places around Western Carolina University’s campus that anyone can enjoy.
