Exam stress makes you wanna scream? Chill out on ice cream

Ice creams are sweet and relaxing—obviously even more so when they are free! Yesterday (24 April) noon, over 200 University of Macau (UM) students queued up in front of the Recreational Area on campus, waiting for a taste of the free ice cream. The long queue snaked to the Ho Yin Convention Centre, and within less than an hour, all ice creams were gone. It turned out this semester-end free ice cream treat was organised by UM’s Dean of Students Dr. Peter Yu and his colleagues, in hopes of helping students to relieve stress at the approach of exams. Dr. Yu said that this was the first time the Student Affairs Office had organised this activity, and they wanted to show students that the university cares deeply about them and hope to help them prepare for the approaching exams with a more relaxed frame of mind. Dr. Yu noted that in the future he and his colleagues will continue to organise more activities according to the students’ interests and needs.

Should you have any enquiries about the information, please feel free to contact the Information Executives Ms.Lei or Ms Fok at(853)8397 4325 or  prs.media@um.edu.mo or visit UM webpage www.um.edu.mo.
