Doodling Helps You Focus

Join us for Doodle Day Thursday, Sept. 1. A Harvard University study found doodling improves memory recall, relieves stress and increases focus. Doodling also helps you relax, makes you more productive and helps you concentrate. Stop by one of the tables located in the Academic Forum, Rohrbach Library or Sharadin Art Building 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a chance to doodle and win prizes. Doodle Dogs will be at Sharadin for Pet Therapy 11 a.m. to noon. The event is sponsored by the KU Health Promotion and Alcohol and Other Drug Services, Essence Magazine, NAEA, AIGA, Shoofly, The KU Clay Club and the KU Art Club. Come by and be part of the fun.
