According to the American Addiction Center, the biggest stressor for college students was is exams (89 percent). With finals coming, the pressure is on – but here at CSUF, you are NEVER alone! Read one for a few ways you can let off some of that steam and power through these last few weeks:

  • TAKE A NAP! It seems obvious, but sleeping is the number one way to help relieve stress, and helps you perform better across the board. (AAC) 
  • Talk it out! (From their website) Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) strives to help students achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. Counselors can help students improve coping skills, strengthen personal relationships, navigate the college transition, recover from traumatic experiences, and engage in self-exploration. CAPS offers brief counseling for individuals and couples, group counseling, psychiatric services, referrals, crisis intervention, and workshops to eligible CSUF students. CAPS counselors are also available to consult with faculty and staff about concerns related to student mental health. In addition, CAPS is home to an APA-accredited Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology for doctoral-level graduate students in clinical and counseling psychology programs.
