Day-to-day life on campus can often be stressful enough whether it’s due to midterms, assignments, and challenging labs as a student or due to deadlines and grading as staff. If on top of it all, you also have one or more children at home or one on the way, things can be even more hectic. Here are some resources available to you at the U of S that may help ease some stress as a student/staff/faculty member on campus:
