This winter has a been a rough one with cold temperatures, lots of snow, and very little sun. By the middle of the quarter, some students may find themselves feeling a little stressed or melancholy, especially in the wake of midterm studying. This is a good time to give your student a call, send them a care package, or encourage them to take advantage of the University's many wellness resources. Fortunately, winter is fleeting, and we'll be back in the sunshine very soon!
