Stay Connected to Others


Maintain your connection with others. It's important not to become isolated especially during stressful times like finals. Here are some ideas to consider: 

  • Participate in volunteer activities that use your talents and skills. You might work on a fundraising project, participate in a musical group, or tutor fellow students or young children.
  • Learn a new skill. There are free or low-cost opportunities to learn to paint, build bookcases, repair your bike, or anything else that seems interesting and fun. The bonus is, you meet others with similar interests.
  • During finals, don't just study alone. Form a study group with classmates to exchange ideas and strategies for better learning.
