Recognize When You Might Be Struggling

  • Readjusting to life in this stage of the pandemic may take some time and could be unsettling. Maintaining schedules and contact with family and friends is particularly helpful.
  • As we all readjust to fully in-person classrooms, it remains very important to recognize if you are struggling in your classes, please utilize faculty office hours and the resources provided in the Koenigsberger Learning Center to support your learning.
  • If you have concerns about a roommate, hallmate or friend who is not doing well, you may speak with your RA for guidance or review the resources from Student Care and Outreach in the Office of the Dean of Students and reach out if they can assist. Resources for sharing a concern or reporting an incident (including behavioral concerns or policy violations, as well as student care referrals) are available online here.
  • If you encounter stressors specific to any aspect of your identity or situation, or are looking for a space to be in community with other students or staff, you may find it helpful to reach out to staff in one of Elon’s identity centers.
