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
