Stress Management Resources

Feeling overwhelmed and stressed out? We understand that being a student can add up to a lot, especially when combined with your work, family, and personal life. Day-to-day demands can quickly take their toll. With that in mind, we want to help support you. As a student in the Applied Computing program, you will have access to a wealth of resources related to creating a productive environment for studying, strategies to develop a solid support network, and finding ways to de-stress and re-center as you prepare to take on your next steps!

Time Management Resources

All Applied Computing students have access to various resources to help in managing and being productive with your time. The Student Resource Lounge includes information and resources on calculating your time, setting goals and priorities, and brainstorming ways to get the most out of your time. You are also welcome to map out your schedule using the interactive Time Management Calculator. This tool will help estimate how much time you should plan to dedicate to coursework each week.

Self-Care Resources

Self-Care is all about being deliberate in taking time for yourself. It is essential to care for the betterment of your mind, body, and overall wellbeing. Self-Care is not about being selfish, but instead about replenishing and refreshing your own wellness in different ways. Our team of Student Success Coaches believes in the importance of taking care of oneself. We have compiled a list of strategies and resources to assist you in finding ways to be your best self and productively take on the challenges.

Why I chose a career in student affairs

I consider myself a life-long learner and believe in the power of education to create opportunities. I have always felt passionate about leaving the world better than I found it. I chose to work within higher education to help others achieve success so in turn they can better their lives, their families’ lives, the lives within their communities, and even create global change.
