Stress in college is inevitable, but sometimes life can become a little overwhelming. This can definitely effect your academic performance and personal well-being. There are many resources on campus to help us deal with and manage our stress:
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS): This is a great resource available to students at the university. CAPS features one-on-one and group counseling for more personal stress. There’s also a new wellness zone that’s open to students throughout the week, providing a relaxing space to relieve some stress. The link to some great CAPS events can be found HERE.
Another great way to reduce stress is to hit the gym. “Working out” in whatever way you can may help reduce stress dramatically. The gyms on campus offer great resources – whether you want to swim a few laps in the Bell Pool, or take part in any of the wonderful health and fitness programs, you can view all information HERE.
Also, if school has you stressed, stop into the Peer Academic Advising Office (PAAO)! We’re in from 12-5PM and would love to help in whatever way we can. Reduce stress to the best of your abilities and good luck with your continuing semesters!
