The end of the fall semester is upon us, and that means finals and end-of-semester projects – and with those things comes a lot of studying, writing and staring at computers. But students don’t have to go down the rabbit hole of stress to ace their exams. Cougar Countdown kicks off Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020, with a variety of academic and social events aimed at helping students stay focused and centered during finals from Dec. 8-Dec. 14. Organized by the Center for Student Learning, Cougar Countdown is a program for students to support their mind, body and spirit during the final days of each semester and during final exams. From virtual workouts to tutoring to online meditation, there’s something to help everyone feel calm and supported as they conclude the semester. And don’t miss the inaugural Finals Fun Park at Silcox Gym featuring a golf simulator, batting cage, putt-putt and disco ping-pong. Students must register to participate in Finals Fun Park activities through IMLeagues.com/cofc. Below is the full schedule for Cougar Countdown:
