Unformatted text preview: 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 prestiges 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.
