Student Support
Life for college & university students can be stressful. Help your students balance school, relationships, career plans, and the demands of daily and family obligations.
  • Academic demands
  • Sudden independence in a new environment with new responsibilities
  • Altered family relations and a new social life
  • Financial responsibilities and crippling levels of debt
  • Exposure to new people, ideas, and temptations
  • Higher level decisions and consequences than accustomed to
  • Substance abuse
  • Sexual identity and orientation issues
  • The uncertainty of life after graduation
  • An increasing number of older, non-traditional students bring their own special stresses: working full-time, raising families, caring for elderly parents, paying the bills


The U.S. Department of Education reports that 50% of college students drop-out or fail, 33% within the first year. "At its top levels, the American system of higher education may be the best in the world. Yet in terms of its core mission — turning teenagers into educated college graduates — much of the system is simply failing." David Leonhardt, New York Times – Colleges Are Failing In Graduation Rates, September 8, 2009

At colleges nationwide, large percentages of students feel overwhelmed, sad, hopeless and so depressed that they have difficulty functioning, much less excelling in school. In a recent national college health survey, 10% of college students had been diagnosed with depression – a rate of 13% for women. Statistics ».

With a little help, many of these students could overcome these challenges, stay in school and move on to lead successful careers.
