Given recent discussions on campuses across the country regarding racial discrimination on college campuses in the United States, as well as reaction to recent tragedies in places like Beirut and Paris, many UCF colleges and student groups are seeking to engage to dialogue and educational events.
UCF's hearts go out to those who have been impacted by the recent tragedy in Paris. The staff members at Counseling and Psychological Services are aware of how a traumatic world event such as this can impact a person individually and have a rippling effect on our campus community. At this time, it is important to seek help and support if you are feeling distressed yourself or to encourage a friend who maybe struggling to seek help.
With final exams just few weeks away and the Thanksgiving break coming up fast, it’s common for college students to feel stress – and for those who suffer from anxiety, this time of year can trigger a full meltdown.
UCF’s Counseling and Psychological Services offers an array of services to help students with anxiety, and this year the center has added another option for students on-the-go. Therapist Assisted Online offers students access to help 24/7, even during school breaks.
Based on data released by the NCAA Wednesday, UCF has an overall Graduation Success Rate [GSR] of 93 percent. That mark puts the Knights in a tie with Vanderbilt for the sixth-best mark in NCAA Division I FBS, trailing only private institutions Duke, Notre Dame, Stanford, Northwestern and Boston College. UCF's GSR is seven points above the national average of 86.
UCF’s Student Academic Resource Center tied for first place in the nation among institutions observing the recent National Tutoring Week. The annual event is hosted by the National Tutoring Association, and this year UCF recognized and thanked the university’s 125 tutors, supplemental instruction leaders, student assistants and graduate assistants.
Black and Hispanic men who attend college are not graduating at the same rate as their female classmates, something that educators nationwide are worried about.
