This is the final posts in the RSO & Work series. This series will take a deep dive into all things that UNLV can offer; Registered Student Organization and working on campus. See just how involved you can get on campus!
College and life, in general, can get very stressful for most students for anyone. Endless test, multiple papers, assignment stacked high and maybe a dash of a late night shift at your job. Stress for any student can get very overwhelming and become too much. That's why it's not only important to recognize your stress but manage it. One of the best ways to do that is through the Relaxation Room.
It's free to use! Well sorta as long as you are a student taking more than 3.5 credits then appointments to use the room do not cost anything extra. All you need to do is make an appointment to use the room and that’s it! The money you would use on the room with a cost can be used can go towards tacos from Taco Bell or your next tasty meal!
30 To 15 Minutes And Multiple Times A Day
Appointments range from 15 minutes to 30 minutes so you can rest with for a little bit or a bit longer. Although it may not be an hour, you are still allowed to make multiple appointments in on the same day! So you can go to class and come back later!
Listen To Music, Watch A Movie Or Show
While you are relaxing you can listen to music or even catch up on your favorite show. The only rules are to have headphones on while listening and make sure not to disrupt other students in any other way. I like to turn on Netflix and catch up on a episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch! Or Listen to the new Ariana Grande album that came out!
The Relaxation room is designed for an absolute quiet atmosphere. Some students can mediate in the room or even take a quick nap. The room is design to have a near silent atmosphere. Even if you doze off and can’t put an alarm, the attendants will remind you once your time runs out!
The most important reason that you should use the Relaxation Room is the massage chairs! These chairs are not only comfy but allow a person to be completely relaxed. The rotation and shuffle of the chair allow you to slump down in a relaxing and comfy position. You will slowly feel your body feel relax and possibly fall asleep! So Why not try the Relaxation room? It will feel like 15 minutes of straight heaven!
