Wellness Wednesday – Managing Midterm Malaise

Hope you’ve gotten back in the swing of studying and test taking. Remember, if you’re overwhelmed, LBCC has lots of resources for you.

Need a quiet place to study? Try the library or one of the cozy corners in nearly every building. Need study help? The Learning Center, Writing Center and Math Café’ offer drop-in and zoom support and can connect you with a tutor if needed.

Need a real break from studying? Take a personal time-out in the new Wellness Room above the library. You can reserve up to 30 minutes to relax in the lux massage chair, do a little sand art, or meditate.  Or make an appointment to use amazing art and tech equipment at the Maker & Innovation Learning Lab. 

Maybe you need some human connection. Meet up with like minds and diverse ones at a club or event. Write with the Creative Writing or Poetry Club, engage in some civil discourse with the Braver Angels debate team, or hang out with other Vets at the campus Vet center. Share with others through the Peer Empowerment Program or a Mental Health Community event.  Join a Study Jam at Benton’s Learning Center.

If you are struggling with a financial need, the Roadrunner Resource Center can help. From emergency grocery money to help with finding housing, they can connect you with LB and community aid.
