Attending university is an exciting and dynamic experience. It can also be a time of change as you grow in your self-awareness and continue to develop your own sense of identity. Attending university also presents its challenges. Outside of the obvious academic pressures, students may have to deal with stresses such as:
- Emotional difficulties
- Balancing academic and personal lives
- Sleeping problems
- Relationship issues (e.g. family, friends, romantic)
- Adjusting to a new home/city/country/culture
- Identity issues
Sometimes coping with one or more of these stresses can prove to be overwhelming. The professional staff of the Student Counselling Centre is here to help students with skills such as stress management, emotional regulation, and relationship building.
