College Rhythm in November

Posted on November 7th, 2017 by

Staying healthy can be a challenge for college students, especially during November. The first (or second, or third!) round of colds and flu hitting campus, the emotional stress of mid-term exams/grades, and irregular sleep and eating schedules all converge. Student schedules are full with academic and extra-curricular activities, including many exams and papers that will be due before Thanksgiving. Roommate challenges become clearer. Juniors and seniors are applying for internships, jobs, and graduate school. Midterm grades are available to students on the Web, which often prompts renewed focus on studying. Students can also feel excitement and/or anxiety about going home for Thanksgiving. Finally, financial stress may hit with the coming of the holiday season.
