OU-C students to provide stress-reduction tips as part of capstone experience

Students in the Technical and Applied Studies program will host an event to address stress reduction from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on May 25 in the Stevenson Center Learning Commons. The event, which is a class capstone project, is free and open to the public. It is particularly geared toward students and the stress they may be facing with courses and other responsibilities.

This offers an opportunity to drop by the Learning Commons, have a few laughs and obtain tips regarding time management, stress reduction, nutrition, and more.

Special guests include:

• Meg Scott, who will speak to us regarding laughter yoga and then conduct a laughter yoga session at 3 p.m. She has been featured in the Columbus Dispatch.

• Larry Pahl, a licensed massage therapist, who will conduct a question-and-answer session regarding stress and nutrition.

• Petland of Chillicothe employees will bring pets to help reduce stress.

Snacks and drinks will be provided.

Class members coordinating the event include Kirk Stephens, Shawna Spindler, Michelle Gilmore, Ben Rittinger and Winda Joseph.
