SKD Inspires Students with Resilience Workshop

February 25, 2018

On February 20, Sigma Kappa Delta unveiled its first Resilience workshop. SKD President Diane Ferrer was joined by Dean Loffert, Dean Howle, Dr. Gunther, and Juliette Aminova for a discussion on how to rise above obstacles to succeed.

The results of a student survey revealed top stressors at Plaza College include fear of failure, time management, childcare, and financial issues. Suggestions for stress relief included:

  • Exercise and sleep regularly
  • Eat healthfully
  • Laugh
  • Practice positive self-talk
  • Make time for yourself
  • Be optimistic
  • Ask for help
  • Spend time with friends and family
  • Manage your time effectively

Resources including emergency help line numbers, the ARC tutoring schedule, and neighborhood businesses were distributed. Please visit Dean Loffert if you would like a copy.

The next Resilience workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 20. We hope to see you there!
