Kendice Ogilvie March 3, 2009 HE 1100 Midterm Assessment Stress Management Being involved in a varsity sport and being subjected to one of the most prestige’s universities in all of America while being over three thousand miles away from home can sometimes be a little much. One of the largest stress factors currently is school. This semester I am enrolled in General Chemistry 2080, Animal Science 1160, AEM 1200, Writing 1380, HE 1100 and a supplement class Chemistry 1008 all totaling up to sixteen credits. It may not seem like a lot of a regular student, but to a student committed to a varsity sport it can be overwhelming. Starting off the semester I knew that it would be challenging for me, so I decided I needed to keep on top of all my work and never get behind, furthermore saying it is easier then following through with it.

I am always hoping to get on the penalty kill or power play so I work so hard in practice to try and show the coaches that I can do it, I can handle it, but it seems that my hard efforts sometimes go unnoticed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
