Sharing successful strategies for dealing with stress is the purpose of a stress-management group open solely to students this semester at Amarillo College.

SuccessOverStress HomePageGraphicAll AC students are invited to take advantage of Success Over Stress (SOS), which meets from noon to 12:50 p.m. Thursdays throughout the fall semester in Dutton Hall, Room 201, on the Washington Street Campus.

Students may enter the support group at any time during the semester; it is never too late to join. Those who attend also are invited to bring a sack lunch.

SOS is completely free and is facilitated by Dr. Alan Kee, professor of psychology and chairman of AC’s Behavioral Studies Department.

“Stress can have a profound impact on college students’ well-being,” Kee said. “It is critical to be able to identify signs and symptoms of too much stress.”

Kee says students who participate in SOS will receive stress-management tips such as how to work off stress, balance work and recreation, take one thing at a time, talk about their worries, and more.
