A college student can deal with many types of stresses including classes, work and relationship problems.

“Our role is to help and support the students so that they can be successful here in the university,” Marcie C. Wiseman, staff counselor, said.
One of the biggest issues that a lot of college students have in common is anxiety.
“We see social anxiety, general anxiety, testing anxiety and anxiety in a lot of different forms,” Wiseman said.
