College 101: Wellness 101

College is a great time, but it can also be stressful. Sometimes managing classes, homework, exams, a social life, getting enough sleep, exercise, the hustle and bustle of New York City, and everything else that goes on in life can seem overwhelming!

Everyone responds to stress in different ways. The Wellness 101 session of our College 101 series is designed to equip you with tools and resources you’ll need to have to best manage all the demands of being a college student. We’ll share tips on how to make sure you take needed breaks; have a buddy or someone to talk to; and take care of your physical well being by getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising. Because we want to see you succeed and make the most of your NYU experience, this session of College 101 is mandatory. For your convenience, multiple sessions will be scheduled throughout the summer; you’ll be able to RSVP through the events calendar when you arrive at Precollege.

As a reminder, here at NYU there are many resources on campus available for you. Some of these include:

The Wellness Exchange (212-443-9999)
The Student Health Center
The Writing Center
The University Learning Center
Your Professors
Your academic adviser and the University Programs Team

So don’t stress; come to Wellness 101!
