Addressing Graduate Students’ Feelings of Stress (12/2)

An End-of-the-Semester “Coffee Break” — Fri. 12/2/11

It is common during this time of year to feel stressed about things
that you want to accomplish before the end of the semester. If you’ve
experienced  anxiety, irritability, apathy, disinterest in activities
that you were formerly involved in, or loss of energy, it’s time to
talk.  In an effort to address concerns of stress during these last few
weeks of the fall semester, we would like to offer you an opportunity to
take a coffee break.  Dr. Robert Deluty, Associate Dean of the Graduate
School and Associate Professor of Psychology, will be joining us for
this session.  If you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed about
classes, end-of-the-semester projects, exams, or the holiday season,
please come! If you are feeling alone, isolated,  or just want to have
an opportunity to connect with others, please come! If you are a
non-traditional graduate student or a first-generation graduate student,
we encourage you to come! If you have been working to try to balance
work and family, or if you are trying to balance other areas of your
life and you need a listening ear, please come!
