JagPRIDE hosted a stress free seminar on Wednesday, Feb. 13. Students made Valentine’s Day cards, while eating brownies, cookies and other treats and listening to music.

To prepare for the seminar, jagPRIDE member sophomore Ellie Tribble collaborated with the rest of the club.

“We ordered supplies off of Amazon,” Tribble said. “We brainstormed ideas of what we thought people would enjoy doing. [Sophomore Belle Bonn] and I also had a good cooking session.”

Junior Rachel Sunderman believes making crafts added fun aspect to the seminar.

“I really enjoyed how there were a lot of crafts because I like hands on work and I really like making my own thing,” Sunderman said “I also liked being around people that I can talk with and just have fun.”

Making food isn’t only fun for the participants in the seminar, but also for the people who make it, according to Tribble.

“We like to make food a lot of the times because it’s honestly just more fun for us and we know everybody likes it,” Tribble said.

The importance of the seminar to Tribble, is for people to be able to relax and have fun.

“I think they’re important because it’s fun to see people come together and just be able to relax for a little bit,” Tribble said. “Even if it’s just in seminar for half of an hour, it’s always a good time to get your friends together, come down and eat food and make crafts.”

Similarly, Sunderman believes the seminars are important because they can give people time to decompress.

“It really gets your mind off things that could be bothering you and it just calms you and makes you feel better,” Sunderman said.

According to Tribble, the Valentine’s day stress free seminar was less successful than others because of all the meetings for new classes and other things at the same time.

“This one was a little bit less successful than what we usually have, but there was also a lot of meetings going on at the same time so I can sympathize,” Tribble said.
