Benchmarks and Potential Challenges

  • Students often exhibit far less strain with the start of spring semester. There is a “honeymoon” period when the students have a renewed energy for classes and friendships.
  • This is the perfect time for your student to work on the skills that were not employed in the fall semester regarding successful test taking, study skills, and time management. Also, this is an opportune time for your student to start an exercise routine and assess food choices. The varied options in the Dining Hall make it possible to eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Feelings of depression may set in with short days and winter weather.
  • Valentine’s Day may bring out loneliness and isolation.
