Seasonal Student Issues for May

There's a seasonal ebb and flow when it comes to student issues. Here are a few things your student may be experiencing this month:

  • Anxiety and tension due to realizations that the year is ending and final exams are about to occur
  • Senior panic about jobs, finances, etc.
  • First-year students are feeling somewhat confident because they feel that they have made it through the first year (almost!)
  • Good feelings are evident as summer is near
  • Lots of cramming, studying and wrapping things up academically
  • End-of-the-year socialization
  • Packing and checking out
  • Saying goodbye to important people and putting closure on the year

Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
