As the first half of the semester winds down, tension builds from midterms, while others may feel the stress of adjusting to college.
One recent day, student development officials and students made it a priority to destress and “take care.”
This day came about with the help of DelVal’s very own student development for diversity and inclusion club, which featured a hair care specialist, a barber, and two estheticians.
Evie Hunter, class of 2024, also the assistant dean of student development, gave some insight on the first-time event popping in the recreational gym.
“This is the first time we have ever done something as relatable as this,” she said. “During the entire semester, we had been brainstorming an idea to provide students with relief, even for a day, to help someone with self-healing from stress.”
When school gets going, students tend to forget to take care of their small self-care habits, whether it’s doing their hair, keeping their skin and nails clean and cut, or brushing their teeth.
The event was held on September 27 from 12 to 4 p.m., and all services were free for students. The turnout was about 20 students.
The take-care events will happen every semester, so be on the lookout for flyers and emails for updates, and remember to put yourself first.
