On most college campuses, final exams are synonymous with long, stressful nights of studying. But at the College of Charleston, students have plenty of opportunities to relax and re-center themselves during finals, thanks to Cougar Countdown, which will run April 27-May 2, 2023.

Organized by offices in the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Cougar Countdown supports students’ minds, bodies and spirits during final exams through a variety of activities that help them both prepare for tests and get some much-needed relaxation and fun.

This semester, Cougar Countdown will feature fun events, including Finals Fun Park, Coffee on the Green, the Stress Relief Fair+Therapy Dogs and Scoops with President Hsu. With yoga, Zumba, free hugs 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.
