If this task is completed, it would probably easy to manage and control stress. Furthermore, students could be informed about the campus resources available to help them address these problems. A better approach may be the use of a stress management workshop, specifically geared to the stressors encountered by college students. Certainly, stress in the college setting cannot be eliminated but we can and should do a better job preparing our students to manage it.
