Take A Break Events

Engineering Take A Break Wellness Tree

Welcome to Take A Break

One of our goals in the Engineering Student Wellness Program is to provide students with the opportunity to meet fellow students, interact with faculty members, and develop skills of resilience through a culture of community and support. Our Take A Break events create a space where students can relax, interact with one another, refuel with complimentary drinks and snacks, and participate in games and activities offered through our Lending Library.

Located on the 8th floor of the Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering, Take A Break occurs every other Wednesday from noon to 3 pm.

Upcoming Events

Activities and Games

Our Lending Library offers a wide variety of portable games that you and your friends can sign out and use within the area of the 8th floor Donadeo. Larger games like Ping Pong and Bean Bag Toss will also be set up throughout the area.

All games require your student OneCard which will be held secure in exchange for the use of a game. Upon returning the game, your OneCard will also be returned to you.
