Celebrate LDOC Safely

April 25, 2022
Categories:

Congratulations on successfully making it to the end of another academic year! As you plan for a fun and festive LDOC (Last Day of Classes), remember to take good care of yourself and your community. There are a number of fun activities planned throughout the day and into the evening. From carnival games to a movie night, check out the LDOC web page for an array of events and join us for games, food and giveaways.

LDOC Safety

No matter how you plan to spend your LDOC, here are some tips for staying safe and supporting the well-being of all Tar Heels:

  • Make a plan. Talk with your friends about getting to and from events safely and how to look out for one another. (Read this Healthy Heels blog post with other ideas for LDOC safety and planning.)
  • Drink plenty of water and eat healthy foods at regular intervals throughout the day.
  • If you or your friends will be drinking alcohol, have a conversation about ways to reduce your risk.
  • If you see someone who is not OK, seek help. Call 9-1-1. Learn more about campus safety resources and services on campus at safe.unc.edu.
  • Remember that we are part of a larger community, so please be respectful of our neighbors in the Town of Chapel Hill and beyond.

Take Care of Yourself During Exams

Finish your semester strong! Here’s a checklist with a few key strategies to manage your stress:

  • Are you getting enough sleep?
  • Are you taking study (and screen) breaks?
  • Are you remembering to fuel yourself?
  • Are you being kind to yourself and others?

The Healthy Heels team shares more advice for staying grounded and in a good headspace during exams on their Healthy Heels blog.

If you think your stress is becoming unmanageable, please seek help. All students (including graduate and professional students and post-docs) can connect with our various University support resources, including Counseling and Psychological Services, the Dean of Students team and Student Wellness. For a comprehensive list of mental health and well-being resources visit the Heels Care Network website.

Take time to celebrate your successes and accomplishments these last couple of days of the semester — and remember to rest, recenter and recharge when you need it.
