"The small student to faculty ratio was a real benefit in my preparation towards my teaching career. It enabled me to get to know my professors well and come to them for help with anything I needed."

The Mid-Semester Slump

Your student may be in a funk known as the mid-semester slump. It involves restlessness, anxiety, strained relationships and stress. It comes about for all sorts of reasons, from midterm exams to being cooped up inside during the winter months.

Some of this slump may come across when you talk with your student. Perhaps she’s a bit shorter with you on the phone or he doesn’t email as frequently as he used to. Try not to take it personally. Instead, see what you can do to help de-slump your student! Some things to try include:

  • Sending a colorful piece of real mail to brighten her mailbox
  • Giving him a favorite magazine to shift his focus
  • Planning a fun event during Spring Break that you can both look forward to
  • Listening when she wants to blow off some steam

Political Science

"The study of political science/law is basically the path of least resistance for me. It is a subject that has always interested me, and one that I have proved to be naturally insightful in. Studying political science isn’t just the study of how governments function or how it is composed, but the study of why it exists and to what ends. In short, it is the study of what makes everything else possible."
