Students set a date for self-care fair to promote well-being


Students from the University of Dundee will be able to swap library for a bit of self-love this week as a Self-Care Fair comes to campus.

Hosted by Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA), the fair will provide self-care strategies for students. 

There will be stalls by local charities and the chance for visitors to make DIY facemasks, lavender pouches and glitter jars.

The Self-Care Fair, which takes place on Wednesday 27th November, is free and open to all.

Lauren MacGregor, Vice President of Student Welfare and organiser of the event said, “The fair is all about promoting well-being on campus and encouraging students to take time to look after themselves.

“Those attending the fair can expect to find fun ways to help themselves in high-stress situations. It will also highlight the importance of taking time and knowing how to manage stress and anxiety, which can sometimes become part of all of our lives.”

Colouring-in tables, succulent plant giveaways, self-care goodie bags, and a hot chocolate station will all be available at the fair between 2-4pm in Air Bar at DUSA.

The self-care fair is part of a line-up of events that have taken place throughout November to raise awareness of Minds Matter Month.

The month consisted of events ranging from workshops focusing on stress and resilience, to a dog therapy day. We hope that the self-care fair can help students de-stress even just for 10 minutes, and take that well deserved time away from studying.
