A semester’s worth of preparation will reach its culmination over the next two weeks, as students in all programs write their final examinations.
Mohsan Beg, director of the Student Counselling Centre, says it’s his busiest time of year – but he wouldn’t want it any other way.
“If students are feeling stressed out, we want them to know they can come and talk to somebody,” he says.
He says young people have many stressors and their effects can be cumulative.
“Sometimes all you need is one session to talk to someone, even briefly. That can make a huge difference,” Dr. Beg says. “Just don’t leave things until they get too unmanageable.”
He urges students to remember to take care of themselves during the exam period.
“Sleeping well, eating well – you can’t ignore these things if you want to do your best.”
He invites students needing to speak with someone to make an appointment by phoning 519-253-3000, ext. 4616 or stopping by the Student Counselling Centre in room 293, CAW Student Centre.
Final examinations begin Monday, April 9. Find a full list of exam times and locations on the Web site of the registrar.
