Support Resources

“During my freshman year, despite great homework and class participation grades, I would often have a panic attack in the middle of an exam, leaving me with much lower grades than I knew I could get. After talking to the SSD office, they set me up with time and a half on exams and a smaller, quiet room to take the test in, allowing me to focus less on my nerves around time and crowds and more on proving my knowledge of the material.”
