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.

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.​​     ​​
