Text Anxiety?




Test Anxiety is common and many students seek Disability Support Services for help with it.  Typically test anxiety is not a symptom of an underlying disability and therefore prevents the student from qualifying for accommodations. These students are always referred to Counseling Services where they can work one on one with a counselor to learn tools and techniques for managing anxiety.  Many of these tools and techniques must be done just before the test occurs and a student may or may not be able to get into counseling before every test.  



Bio feedback tools allow a student to gain skills and be independent in managing anxiety and stress symptoms before tests and other times without the necessity of an official appointment. 

 BIO FEEDBACK LOUNGE

A private, relaxing environment (the Bio Feedback Lounge) is provided in the Roberts Library so students are able to maximize their experience.


To take advantage of these tools and schedule a short training session please contact Counseling Services or Disability Support Services at 706-272-4429 or stop by Academic Resources in the lower level of the Pope Student Center.

World Book Night

 
The books have arrived! 

World Book Night is on April 23, 2014. 

How it works 
Each year, 30- 35 books are chosen by an independent panel of librarians and booksellers. The authors of the books waive their royalties and the publishers agree to pay the costs of producing the specially-printed World Book Night U.S. editions. After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out 20 copies of a particular title in their community.

Roberts Library is a Host Library for all the local Givers to pick up their books to give away on World Book Night. To learn more, go to www.worldbooknight.org
