March and April is a time of beginnings and endings in post-secondary. The crunch of the semester has arrived and prepared or not, you’re in the middle of it. Don’t let the pressure get to you! Pull out your phone or MP3 player and click on your favorite relaxing playlist, and focus on your strengths and solutions. Here are a few:
• Come see us at SAMRU and participate in all the great Exam Relief activities in April to take your mind off of those exams, even temporarily. 
• Hang out in the Peer Support Centre in Wyckham House anytime during center hours and talk to another student with great listening skills. 
• Come by the Student Advocacy office (Z 302) during drop-in time and let’s talk about what’s going on and figure out some options together. Drop-in hours for the Winter 2015 semester are Monday-Friday 12 noon- 1:00 p.m. You can also make an appointment.
Once the final exam schedule is published on My MRU, check it out and map out a plan.
• You can visit a Student Learning Services (T123) workshop on ‘Studying for Tests’, scheduled to run 9-9:50 a.m. on March 5, 2015, or consider checking out the ‘Test-taking Tips’ workshop 4:30-5:20 p.m. on March 12, 2015. 
• Ask yourself some questions: How are you doing in the course? How much of your mark do you have already? Will you be able to complete all the course requirements in time? Is a general withdrawal or withdrawing with cause an option for you? The deadline is March 20, 2015.
• Register for a workshop: “Stress management for Exams” through Wellness Services online, by phone, or in-person (U 216). The workshop is offered March 19, 2015 from 4-5:30 p.m. OR 12:30-1:45 p/m. on April 10, 2015. Pre-registration is required.
 
You know you’ve got this! There are always options; even when unexpected things happen.
