De-Stress Fest May 3 at Hindsman Tower

De-Stress Fest 2024

The Arkansas Tech University Health and Wellness Center invites ATU students to prepare for fall examinations by attending De-Stress Fest 2024 on Friday, May 3.

The event will take place from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Hindsman Tower.

De-Stress Fest was originally scheduled for Friday, April 26. It was postponed until Friday, May 3, due to inclement weather.

The event will include opportunities for ATU students to interact with lambs, ducks, chicks, rabbits, goats, calves, miniature ponies and pot-bellied pigs.

“Engaging with animals has been shown to reduce stress, promote happiness, foster empathy and improve overall mental well-being,” stated the ATU Health and Wellness Center on its Instagram page.
