Addressing Graduate Students’ Feelings of Stress (12/7)

An End-of-the-Semester “Coffee Break”

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 a practicing clinical psychologist, will lead 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!
