UCBA Students Can Color to Contribute to Science


“Did you know that coloring can help reduce stress?” At least, that is what so many adult coloring books claim to say. However, there are very few studies that actually support this claim. But the good news is, there is a chance on campus to help answer this very question.

A group of students supervised by Dr. Marissa Oehlhof is doing a five-week study studying the effects of coloring on stress levels, and they need your help. The study will occur on March 26 through April 23, on Tuesdays from 12:30-2:00 pm. Participants will be asked to be there for an hour to relax and color.

There are brief survey questions, but all information is anonymous. At the completion of the study, you will get to keep the adult coloring book. If you are interested in joining, please contact for more information!
