Winter 2018 Brain Fuel Week

Feeling a little stressed about upcoming final exams? Brain Fuel Week is here to help! From March 5 - 9, grab a friend and stop by any of the events taking place across campus to relieve some stress from prepping for finals week.

The week includes a variety of programs that address mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health topics in an effort to ease the pain of finals. New programs are included in this year's line-up, as well as previous fan-favorites are back, such as aromatherapy and healthy food-tasting sessions.

The Lincoln Park Campus' John T. Richardson Library also has free puzzle-making stations and the Loop Campus' Library has puzzle and button-making stations. Both are open from 2-9 p.m. every day during Brain Fuel Week. A full schedule of events can be found on Orgsync.

Sponsored by the Office of Health Promotion and Wellness, Campus Recreation, the University Library, Residential Education, Dining Services and the Office of Student Involvement, Brain Fuel Week occurs during the last week of each academic quarter. For more information, please contact Alyssa Rickman​ in the Office of Health Promotion and Wellness.

Explore your Academic and Career Interests with the Strong Interest Inventory

On Friday, March 9, University Counseling Services and the Career Center will host a workshop where students can explore their academic and career interests. Using the Strong Interest Inventory, students will learn more about their interests and explore which careers might be most satisfying to them. 

This workshop is great for students who may be unclear about their academic path or major, or students who may be deciding what to do after graduation. 

Interested students should RSVP by March 6 by emailing or calling Louis Formica at (773) 325-1393. Once students RSVP, they will receive access to the online assessment, the results of which will be discussed during the workshop on March 9.
