Final exams are synonymous with long, exhausting nights of studying on most college campuses. But at the College of Charleston, students have plenty of opportunities to relax and re-center themselves during final exams, thanks to Cougar Countdown. Running April 26–May 2, 2022, Cougar Countdown offers students a mixture of academic, physical and emotional support programs and activities from offices and departments across campus.
Organized by offices in the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, 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.
This semester, Cougar Countdown will also provide some really fun events, including Scoops with Hsu, a yoga class with Clyde and cuddles with therapy dogs! With free coffee, snacks, study breaks and even a giant jigsaw puzzle, Cougar Countdown will keep students motivated and ready for the exams ahead!
A full schedule is available below, with details on the Cougar Countdown website.
