Librarians usually tell kids to keep it down, but that wasn't the case at UW-La Crosse Monday. It was the annual 'Finals Scream' on campus.

Chancellor Joe Gow led students, faculty, and staff in a minute long shout.

It's something the campus librarians put together to help relieve some of the stress students are facing during final exams which Chancellor Gow says goes beyond the tests.

"Some of them are going to be graduating and they're worried about finding a job, the economy, and what the world looks like, so we know there's a lot of anxiety so it's nice to take a moment and say, yeah, let's let a little of that out," said Chancellor Gow.

Finals at UW-L run through Friday evening.
