Skills Week coming to South

Managing homework, study time for a test and life’s other problems can seem overwhelming for students.

South Campus student activities has paired with counseling and advising to help students manage problems like these by presenting Skills Week Sept. 22, 23 and 25 in the SSTU Forum Room on South Campus.

Student development associate Axel Leos said this collaboration between the departments is for the students and really geared toward the new-to-college students.

“All these workshops are essential skills for any college student,” he said.

The conflict resolution workshop noon-1 p.m. Sept. 22 will present ways to identify and mediate different kinds of conflict. It is along the lines of think before reacting and using emotional intelligence, Leos said.

“Conflict can be spontaneous. It can just come up,” he said. “So students who come to this will be able to better deal with it and be better prepared.”

The stress management workshop presented by South Campus counselor Sandra Johnson 12:30-1:30 p.m. Sept. 23 will discuss how every person has stress, Leos said.

“She defines what stress is and all the negative effects on students’ lives,” he said.
Johnson will talk about reflexology and explain how students should take care of themselves, Leos said.

“It is important to go home and unwind,” he said. “It’s important to study, but you also have to have time for yourself to manage your stress.”

The How to Take a Test and Pass workshop 12:30-1:30 p.m. Sept. 25 will give students tools for studying and preparing for a test, Leos said.
