CollegePrep

CollegePrep focuses on behaviors related to sleep, nutrition, fitness, and mood, which often change in college-age students and can dramatically affect happiness and school performance. Tailored content focuses on easing the adjustment to a new environment, with skill-based modules tailored to questions about common college topics such as test anxiety and starting new relationships.

The interactive program examines how students respond when they confront difficult or stressful events in their lives. There are lots of ways to try to deal with stress. Students are asked to indicate what they generally do and feel when they experience stressful events.
