Lately, I've been feeling stressed with my internship search and approaching midterms, so I thought this would be a good time to talk about all the resources the University of Minnesota has to help students deal with stress!
The University recognizes that stress is part of the college experience, so it has created several programs for students to help them better manage their stress.
- P.A.W.S (Pet Away Worry & Stress): Weekly sessions with therapy animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, and Woodstock the chicken.
- Student Academic Success Services: Several materials and services are offered to help students develop study and time management skills. It also provides techniques for relaxation and tips on how to cope with stress.
- Comfort Zone Classes: FREE weekly yoga, Pilates, and tai chi classes that are offered through Boynton Health Service.
- Stress Management Classes: Success Over Stress, a one-credit course within the School of Public Health.
Whenever things feel overwhelming, just know that the University is here to support you!
Until next time,
