Sponsored by Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at University Park.
CAPS is offering a twice-daily drop-in support opportunity for all PSU students – Virtual Life Hacks. These run M-F at 10:00am AND 3:30pm for one hour and is comprised of a 20-25 min presentation about the transitions, managing stress, and coping skills associated with COVID-19 and small group discussions. It is designed for all students, both undergrad and graduate and run by CAPS staff. Please note – this is NOT a therapy group.

College life is full of new opportunities and expectations, people and experiences, academic demands and freedom. Although it is often an exhilarating time, it can be stressful and confusing as well. These new challenges are sometimes accompanied by some difficult feelings, including stress, sadness, anxiety, irritability, depression, or dissatisfaction. When these feelings linger, become overwhelming, or begin to interfere with a person’s ability to function, counseling may be a good option. Counseling Services at Penn State Brandywine is here to help students understand these feelings. Together we can find improved ways of coping with and growing from these experiences.
