Stress and Time Management Coaching           

Being a college student is stressful. Wellness Center staff can help you create a stress and time management plan and develop other personal organizational skills.

The Wellness Center can help you learn more about these programs and how to apply and also assist you in connecting to low- or no-cost community resources, such as medical and dental care, groceries and hot meals, legal services, and child care.          

Support Groups           

Support groups are offered on topics relevant to college students, such as stress and time management, busy parents, anger management, and veterans issues. Check with your Wellness Center to see what is offered for each term.
