As college students, we are familiar with the hefty workload of classes, and the negative consequences of not keeping up with school work. Being unorganized and falling behind in class can lead to nervous breakdowns, feeling burnt-out, increased stress levels, and physical illness. With the amount of freedom and independence that being in college comes with, it could be easy for any student to let their grades slip. Here at UNH, there are a variety academic resources available on campus, and it is never too late to seek them out for help.
