Autumn is in the Air

Autumn is in the Air

Along with shorter days, longer nights, colder and wetter weather, and the upcoming time change, students are facing midterm exams and other academic stresses. Homesickness may be setting in, and some students experience a mid-semester slump. It’s a good time to send along some support--and to recognize that your student might not respond to calls and texts as quickly as they had earlier in the semester. Remind them to get enough sleep, eat well, and get some fresh air. For more information about student health and support services, visit
