Matadors Will Finish Strong this Spring Semester During “Crunch Time” from the USU

May 4, 2021


Northridge - The University Student Union (USU) welcomes all CSUN students to take advantage of a wide variety of self-care opportunities and enjoy some stress relief during finals this semester with an exciting new virtual Crunch Time program. From Monday, May 17 to Friday, May 21, Matadors can let off some steam and get motivated to ace their exams with coffee breaks, self-care packages, and a fun series of mind/body activities all provided by the USU! 

“The USU is offering students a break from finals with care packages, hot drinks and other great ways to take care of your mental and physical health,” said USU Coordinator of Programs and Black Student Success Initiatives, Pero Akinbohun. “As finals go online, we want our students to feel supported through our virtual and physical resources.” 

This semester’s segment of Crunch Time includes fun and relaxing ways for students to find stress relief and take some well-deserved time away from studying to help you get pumped to finish the semester off strong. Matadors will have the opportunity to sign up to visit a coffee shop near the CSUN campus or close by in the San Fernando Valley to pick up your free drink, courtesy of the USU! There will be three separate shops where students can swing by and pick up a tasty cup of determination for free. In addition, students who sign up can receive a special curated self-care package filled with face masks, school supplies, stickers and much more. Don’t forget to participate in testing your knowledge and skills on “Trivia Night” taking place Wednesday, May 6 over Zoom for a chance to score some awesome prizes! 

Students are also invited to sweat out their stress with the Student Recreation Center (SRC) during their Energy-boosting workouts all via Zoom. Then, check out the Oasis Wellness Center with virtual Zoom Yoga classes offering a chance for Matadors to slow things down and take time to release tension from their bodies. Students who sign up to participate in the Oasis Wellness Center or SRC classes can enter in a raffle to win a relaxing diffuser/ face steamer or exciting SRC swag including quality gym equipment such as workout bands, foam rollers and gift cards. Furthermore, students will also be eligible to enter a raffle to receive meal-prep delivery throughout the week by taking a special meal-prep class with an expert instructor. Get ready for finals this semester by focusing on taking care of yourself inside and out with the USU! 

All CSUN students are invited to treat themselves right and finish the semester strong during Crunch Time from the USU! For more information about this event and the University Student Union, please visit or USU Coordinator of Programs and Black Student Success Initiatives, Pero Akinbohun at
