Managing mid-semester stress

Midterms! Major and career exploration! Registration! Campus engagement! As a college student, you are asked to constantly balance competing priorities. We recognize that this might feel a bit frantic at times, resulting in tension and stress. That's why we've put together a list of resources to help you manage it all.
Many of you are aware of the basics of good self-care: get enough sleep, exercise regularly, take breaks, and eat healthy.

Taking care of yourself, mentally and physically, is essential to navigating college and having the best experience possible. We have many resources on campus to help you manage your academics, health, and well-being:
