Relieving College Stress and Planning for Your Future

College and the post-college years are stressful!

In her book Bossypants, Tina Fey writes of stress:

“I was…blorft. “Blorft” is an adjective I just made up that means ‘Completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possum.’ I have been blorft every day for the past seven years.”

It’s no wonder that college and the post-college years can be some of the most stressful years of a person’s life. These young adults have to contend with thoughts about education paths, career pursuits, financial issues, and the possibility of starting a family. On top of that, the late teens and early twenties are often the busiest years of your life. Between socializing, studying, and working, these formative years frequently go sleepless.

If you’re concerned about the stressors of your collegiate career, or need mentoring and direction, consider talking to one of our counselors. We’ll discuss your current psychological state, and prepare you for a balanced future. Our experts will aid you in developing goals, forming schedules, and analyzing your strengths and weaknesses.
