Counseling and Consultation Service

Recess on Wooster Campus

Take a Break, Play, and Relax!

When: April 5th 11-2

Where: Front lawn between Skou and Halterman Hall

Student Life’s Counseling and Consultation Service is delighted to showcase the benefits of mindful play. We love this time of year and the chance to spend time with students and remind everyone to take a break, play, and relax.

The mission of RECESS is to join with others in our Buckeye community to offer activities aimed at education about mental health, stigma reduction and wellness.

Why play? And why play for adults? Play can create a positive state of mind and pleasant emotions, which can foster great things like creativity, innovation, mental flexibility, empathy, social connections, a sense of belonging, stress relief and resilience. Take time away and explore your play style. It’s still ok to have fun! 

Please join us for therapy dogs, food including hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones, and giveaways!
