6 Tips To Help College Students Avoid Stress During The Spring Semester

Make sure you are prepared and confident about this semester!

6 Tips To Help College Students Avoid Stress During The Spring Semester

As this new semester starts, try to stay positive and remember just a few things.

1. Professors are there to help

If you are worried about a class and think you might struggle, talk to your professor. They are there to help you learn and teach you. They have office hours and you can set up meeting times to get extra help.

2. Your mental health is important

Your mental health is just as important as your academics and school work, if not more so. Make sure to take time each week to check in with yourself and make sure that you are mentally healthy. You can't be successful if you aren't mentally well.

3. Studying sooner rather than later can relieve stress

If you start studying early and keep up with the topics in your classes, then it will save you stress as midterms and finals start to come up. It will also help you be more prepared for any exams, tests, and projects.

4. Keep track of dates

Write down all the dates of projects, papers, and homework that you will have to do. This will help you prepare and plan out your weeks. Knowing all your due dates can take immense stress off of you. Preparation is key.

5. Think about what study methods work for you and focus on those

It isn't helpful to study in ways that don't help you prepare or remember what you studied. If you do study, do it in an effective way. This again helps you prepare and actually feel better about your classes.

6. Don't exhaust yourself

If you start to feel overwhelmed or like you are doing too much, then take a step back. Only focus on exactly what you have to do. This allows you to have some time to yourself and take a minute if you need one. Don't over-commit yourself to activities and stretch yourself too thin.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
