De-stress Fest

Welcome to the Bakersfield College Grace Van Dyke Bird Library's De-Stress Fest! 

At the end of each semester, when stress levels start to build as everything is coming to a close in all of your classes and final exams are approaching, we want to support you in every way, including helping you to de-stress!  When you are not able to come to the library for our various de-stress activities and stations, you can find plenty of resources here in this LibGuide.  Take a break, get some study tips, de-stress with some games and relaxation, and take care of your mental health!! Then study hard and finish strong!
