We possess a diverse student population at Fairmont State. Take a moment to look around your classroom and you'll see students representing geographic origin, ethnic backround, religious preference, gender, generations, and more. You may find yourself struggling with challenges unique to one of those groups you belong to; additionally, you'll be facing challenges universal to college students.
Contrary to what popular culture portays, it is rare to graduate college without a few bumps along the way. We are here to keep those bumps from becoming roadblocks. So what kind of problems might you face or be facing?
The honest truth is that admitting to someone that you have a problem is one of the most difficult actions when addressing something you are struggling with. You may perceive it as displaying a weakness, or that there will be social implications. Maybe you don't trust that you'll find help, or that everyone goes through the same issues and you need to manage it better.
Unless you are struggling to figure out what that big bright thing in the sky is, the problems you are having are likely shared by many of your peers. You are only cheating yourself if you minimize your challenges and don't find a strategy or support to help you overcome. "Oh, everyone rage cries after submitting a paper." You may be surprised that not everyone does.
