Where do I go for support?

Where am I able to find support when I am falling behind in a class or do not understand something? I have decided to go to a larger college and I'm worried about feeling lost and alone. Will there be peer mentors or professor mentors that will be able to help guide me to make the most effective choices? #learning #support #large-college #effective

You will need to focus on stress and time management. In order to manage stress you have to manage your time wisely. <span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>

Hi Emily,

Hope you are doing well!! Definitely you can find professor mentors if you approach them. Also your fellow mates might be good in some topics you don't understand, ask them. What matters is your way of approaching for help and attitude.

Firstly, be confident on your abilities. Many times though you are aware of the topic, due to lack of confidence, you might feel low.

Also as Rachel mentioned, manage your time well. Spend your time for quality studies. Refer good notes and good websites.

Hope this helps!! All the best :)

Try reaching out to friends you'd be comfortable talking with. You can often find people that would be willing to study with you and hold you accountable to your larger goals if you don't feel comfortable reaching out to some of the formal mentors, teachers, and campus staff you might have access to. Try joining study groups; it can often be relieving to hear that you're not the only one having difficulties and they might have resources you can tap into as well.
