Self-Care Resources for Students

Dr. Heath Hoffman from the Sociology department has compiled a Google Site full of resources for students to help with self-care and life-college balance. There are resources in all formats (digital, on-campus, off-campus, etc.) and are accessible to all students.

This would be helpful to bookmark as many students will soon be making the transition from living at home to on- or off-campus living arrangements while classes are beginning to ramp up.

The site can be found here: https://sites.google.com/cofc.edu/self-care-hoffmann/home
