Adam Rago—“I like to read. I read different books or articles. That’s refreshing to me, gets my mind going and off of school stuff.”

Shirley Cheng—“I like to get off campus and see Philly or see some other place outside of Villanova. … just get off campus and remember that there’s a world outside of Villanova.”

Colleen Yost—“I’m usually most stressed when I’m in the Library. I either go outside and walk to Connelly to get food—I need to get out and walk somewhere ‘cause sometimes I’m in here for hours and I’ve got to get out—or watch Netflix, listen to music.”

Mitchell Johnson—“To get away from what I’m doing, I would either just get up and walk and go get something to eat or get my mind on something else, like get together with my friends and play basketball or do something outside of work to get my mind off of it.”

Brian Polk—“What I generally do is distract myself by talking to somebody who’s probably being more productive than I am and see what’s happening in their life. In doing so, I distance myself from whatever work I’m supposed to be working on, and later I can come back and have a little bit fresher more clairvoyant perspective.”
