As SMU enters both the holiday and exam seasons, the Office of the Provost is asking that all University community members look out for signs of stress in themselves and in co-workers and students.
The stretch from Thanksgiving to the end of finals is “a time of significant stress for many members of our community,” wrote Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Steven Currall in an e-mail message dated Nov. 21, 2016. “We ask each of you to be aware of signs of stress in yourself and those around you. In particular, I ask that you be aware of signs of stress among students, especially first-year students as they are experiencing their first round of final exams.”
In addition, Currall urged students “who feel the stress of the season and finals” to visit the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center and make use of several resources available to them. Learn more under the jump.
