The University of Miami is celebrating “Less Stress Week,” which aims to help students manage stress and anxiety. Many students, like senior Abigail Templin, find the semester stressful and struggle with self-care as the workload increases. Templin admits that as schoolwork piles up, things like social activities, exercise, and eating habits can suffer.

To combat this issue, the university organized various activities throughout the week. These activities include therapy dogs, painting and drawing, puzzles, yoga and stress-free workshops. Assistant Director of Mental Health Promotion and Education, Caitlin Howell, emphasizes the importance of students taking time for themselves and prioritizing their mental and emotional well-being.

Templin believes these events help normalize the conversation about mental health on campus and remind students that they are not alone in their struggles. By coming together as a community, students can support each other and promote a culture of self-care and mental health.

Meanwhile, Moeller graduate Trey McBride is in his third year of playing professional basketball overseas, fulfilling his dream. Additionally, The Hub OTR will close at the end of April as the owner announces plans for a new chapter in life outside the restaurant industry.
