Cougar Countdown Keeps Students Calm, Centered During Exams

Cougar Countdown Keeps Students Calm, Centered During Exams

For most students, exams mean late nights of coffee-fueled studying. For College of Charleston students, they also mean puppies, meditation and shag classes.

That’s because, at the College, Cougar Countdown supports students’ minds, bodies and spirits during the last days of each semester and final exams through a variety of activities that help them both prepare for exams and get some much-needed relaxation. Organized by the Center for Student Learning, Cougar Countdown provides tips and suggestions on its webpage about planning for exams, studying and managing stress as well as supplying a list of study locations for students to get the peace and quiet they need. And Cougar Countdown offers students a mixture of academic, physical and emotional support programs from offices and departments across campus.
