We Make it Happen Together 

January 11, 2019

Time to roll up your sleeves and dig into Spring Term!

Throughout the semester, be sure to check in with yourself and your classmates. Make sure you are getting enough sleep, exercise, and food to keep you in top shape for your busy schedule.

If you need help at any point throughout the term, talk with someone you trust, a favorite instructor, a student service advisor, or a good friend. We need one another for support when we are feeling down, so take care of yourself and look out for each other.
