An array of students flowed in and out of the student center as they do every school day, except this time they had games to play.
Student Government hosted the Stressbreaker event, which featured carnival games, fortune tellers, free manicures, and music by the VWA Experience.
Although Stressbreaker was used in the past to relieve stress students experience prior to exams, the initiative was different for this semester.
“Spring break was pushed back farther than it usually is, so it’s kind of a break for students so they can keep going,” said Jessyca Fye, student government vice president.

A few of the games featured in the student center included skeet ball, horse shoes, and monster blast, where a nerf gun is used to shoot monsters in the windows of a house.
“I think this is really cool, Student Government did a really good job getting games,” said SC4 student Kevin Kortas.
While Student Government hosted the event, other clubs pitched in for certain games and activities.
“We had some clubs still do their own thing, but most of them just helped us with our variety of tabletop carnival games and hi-striker,” Fye said.
Health and Wellness had their own carnival set up in the cafeteria, where students could play ring toss, knock cans down with a ball, or guess which floatable duck was lucky in order to win food and/or cans of pop. WSGR had Legos set up in the student center, and the GSA brought in students from the Paul Mitchell School for free manicures and hair braiding.
This year’s carnival theme, while different, seemed to be a well-received event by students, as their smiles and laughs filled the student center.
“The carnival theme brings everyone together, and it makes the clubs more connected,” Kortas said.
