Dealing with the blues - Homesickness guide for students
Homesickness, it's universal. Psychologists call it "separation anxiety" and few people are immune. It is experienced by the kindergartner going off to school, as well as the businessperson starting a new job. Here are a few tips to help you through it now or in the future.
If these feelings persist or become so intrusive as to impair your daily activities or class obligations, you may benefit from talking to a counselor with special training in helping students adjust to the college environment. You may make an appointment to see a counselor at University Counseling by stopping by the office in Whitesitt Hall, or by calling 620-235-4044.
Please contact Sarah Lueck - Student Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org or Taylor Panczer at 620-235-4062 or by email at email@example.com for more information. Or stop by our office in the Campus Activities Center, 109 Overman Student Center.
