2. Attend the scream event.

Every year, the Dimond Library hosts yet another destress event. Everyone who attends gets together, and lets out their stress by screaming. This is a great event to attend during your study break, and will be a great time to have a laugh as well.

3. Take advantage of Philbrook Cafe and their hours!

During finals week, you may find yourself studying for hours on end and then come to realize that all the dining halls have closed. Luckily, Philbrook Cafe is open until 1am. Take advantage of this and go grab yourself some dinner during your long study sessions this week!
