College can be stressful for many students, especially during midterms and finals. With an overwhelming amount of work, students need a place to unwind and forget about the stresses of school and life. Montclair State University has events and activities every week to help students unwind and relax.

Every Wednesday, there are DIY activities in the Drop -in Center. The DIY activities allow students to make creative crafts. Students get a chance to meet new people and keep themselves busy with this fun activity.

The crafts range from making origami, vases, yarn kites, picture frames and so much more.

On Nov. 30, students went to the Drop-in Center to express their creativity and relieve some stress by making yarn kites.

“I’ve attended other DIY activities here before, said Ashley Aracena, a senior psychology major. “I’ve done canvas painting and pumpkin decorating.”

There are many more events to help students relax, some are even targeted to help students de-stress before finals. There are even events on safe sex, how to sleep better and other events aimed to help students.

“I love it. I feel like I’m being creative which makes me powerful,” said Lily Robinson a senior philosophy major.
Students can access any upcoming event or activities being held at Monclair State by logging onto their Hawk Sync account. This program allows students to view and RSVP for the events.

Students also have the option of syncing the events they are attending into their phone calendar. They can also download the app called “Org Sync” and select Montclair State and log in. That way, students can always stay informed and have the latest events and activities right on their phone.
