The Daily Tar Heel

Q&A with stress expert Dr. O’Barr
The exam period can be a stressful time. The Daily Tar Heel reporter Ellen Black spoke with Dr. Allen O’Barr, the director of Counseling and Wellness Services, on how to handle exam stress in a healthy way.

Find ways of balancing life and exams for the next week and a half: Try to get enough sleep; 8 hours a night is recommended Avoid drugs and alcohol Avoid stimulants such as caffeine, Adderall and Dexedrine Eat a balanced diet, not just sugary and junk foods Take breaks while doing work Make a schedule and stick to it If feeling overwhelmed, visit Counseling and Wellness Services. Walk-in hours are Mon. through Fri.: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

DAILY TAR HEEL: How should students handle the stress of exams?
stressful for most people. It’s tempting to deprive yourself of sleep, use substances, eat poorly, but those things ultimately aren’t going to help you get through exam period. The best thing to do is to try to have prepared up until that point to make sure you are ready. Set a schedule, so that you’re not just wasting time. Try to get good sleep, if you can. Try and not to do drugs or drink alcohol. Try to eat well. It’s amazing what a good diet does for brain function.

AO: Exams are inherently

DTH: Is there anything that college students should start doing that could help us during exams? AO: Better than anything else, start with a schedule today. Look at your schedule, put your time blocks in there for your classes. If you’ve got important social things that you need to do, put those in as blocks, then put in your study blocks, and if your study blocks are few and far between and your social blocks are a ton, start cutting out social blocks and putting more study blocks in. You can make up the social stuff later. Now is the time to set up a calendar and just stick to the schedule, otherwise the time goes by. DTH: What are the most common stress-related problems that you hear of? AO: Not being able to sleep. Once a person gets stressed, they start getting anxious, they can have panic attacks, they can have difficulty falling asleep and difficulty staying asleep. They can lose their appetite. I’d say anxiety is the number one thing that’s a result of stress. DTH: What are some ways to de-stress during exams to prevent these problems?

AO: Exercise, good sleep, good diet, and of course, seek help if you don’t feel like you’re going to make it. Come to Counseling and Wellness. DTH: Is it important to take breaks? AO: I think so. Your brain is only going to be able to function maximally for whatever period of time is determinant to you. If you find yourself just staring at the page, not retaining anything, take a break. The break will refresh you. I’m not saying take a 2 day break, but take 45 minutes or an hour if you can afford it and go do something physical to get your blood pumping, so that you’re sort of changing over all the blood in your brain. Otherwise you just end up staring at the same sentence and the same page over and over again. If you’re not getting anywhere, you might as well take a break. DTH: What should students do if they are feeling overwhelmed? AO: Come to Counseling and Wellness, or if it’s not that severe, seek help from a friend or family.
Contact the desk editor at

DTH: If we have to choose between sleep and exercise, which should we choose? AO: Try to balance them. If you can drop from 8 hours of sleep to 7 hours of sleep, and squeeze in an hour of exercise, good move. If you’re dropping from 2 hours of sleep to 1 hour of sleep to get exercise, bad move. The idea is balance. I would opt for enough sleep first, and then, if there’s a way to get exercise, get exercise. DTH: What are some things that college students usually do during exams that actually hurt us rather than help us? AO: Pretty much, skipping sleep. Also stimulant use, including caffeine, Adderall or Dexedrine. If those aren’t prescribed, and I know people are using them, that’s ultimately putting you into a deficit that you may not be able to sustain through an 8-day exam period.

Your guide to the best exam week traditions
Events on campus help students relieve stress during exams.
By Neal Smith
Staff Writer

Ever wanted to be in a huge mob of streakers running through a flash rave in the Pit while on your way to make gingerbread houses and pet cute therapy dogs? The chances of this exact scenario happening are probably zero, but each of these events happen individually as part of a variety of exam week traditions.

Streaking in the library
Many students’ midnight study sessions are interrupted by naked people running through the hallways of UNC’s libraries. The midnight before the first day of exams, a group of students gather at the flagpole in the quad at 11 p.m. By midnight, the group has stripped and runs first through Davis Library, then the Student Union, the Pit and finally the Undergraduate Library. The streakers finish with the alma mater, and other studying students typically join in singing. This event is so popular that videos from past years are scattered around YouTube.

“We’ve been doing this several years now and people expect it now,” he said. “It’s definitely something unique to the UNC community and shows Tar Heel pride.” Borde estimated that the event attracts about 1,000 participants based on responses to the Facebook invitation, but the number can vary widely depending on the weather, he said. Borde said that students gather around the Pit before the event starts, but must stay out of the pit until the flash rave begins. “A lot of schools do the flash mob thing, but we talked to a lot of other local schools and they don’t have the same tradition,” he said.

will satisfy any sweet tooth. Each year, CUAB hosts a gingerbread house building event in the Great Hall of the Student Union, said Tom Low, president of CUAB. He said this event has been going on for at least three years. “It is easily one of the most popular events on campus,” he said. The organization has all the supplies from marshmallows to gum drops needed to build a gingerbread house, he added. “It attracts all kinds of people. Girls, guys, seniors, freshmen, people love it.”

With the little sleep and excessive stress of exams, try things you normally wouldn’t do: Wear only pajamas the whole week Bring a pillow and blanket everywhere Watch a movie on the projector in one of the large lecture halls Take a walk in the graveyard at midnight Explore the new Genome Science Building Introduce yourself to the after-midnight security guard at the Undergraduate Library

Therapy dogs in Park Library
For those missing their furry friends, therapy dogs will visit the Park Library during the two reading days. Stephanie Brown, director of the Park Library, said being able to interact with the high-

Gingerbread houses
Many students spend exam week with food on the brain, and the Carolina Union Activities Board’s gingerbread house event is a tradition that

ly-trained dogs lowers everyone’s stress during exams. “People sit in Park Library and pop in and out of the room. Some spend 10 to 20 minutes, some spend an hour,” she said. Usually about 100 people attend the event, she said. This year, the dogs Mickey, Whiskey and Bear will be at the event during various times on both reading days, Dec. 6 and Dec. 12. The Park Library is located on the second floor of Carroll Hall. Contact the desk editor at

Flash rave in the Pit
For ten minutes each exam period, the Pit goes from deserted to dance floor complete with lights, music and hundreds of students getting out all the stress that accumulates in the library. The flash rave has become a staple of the night before the second reading day of exam week. This year the event is once again at midnight, on the night of Dec. 11. Pretish Borde, a senior and organizer of the rave, said the event takes place before a reading day so that students don’t have to worry about waking up early for an exam.

The Daily Tar Heel

How do you get through exams?
Aubrey Germ Junior, environmental health science

Grab a friend and take turns connecting the dots. The person who finishes making the most squares wins the game.

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
Douglas Adams
author, 1952-2001

“Making a study schedule is extremely helpful. You feel good checking things off a list.” “I usually Facebook a lot. Intermittent social media stalks are a great way to release stress.” “I listen to a lot of music, take spontaneous breaks. I love Cookout runs … Don’t procrastinate!”
“It’s really important to specially allocate time for breaks … You should be around people you like being around.”
