[Academic] [Study Tips] [Well Being] [Disabilities]
I want you to do well in this class and learn. I am available during office hours to assist you. If you are ever in need of additional help, come see me. There are also a number of campus support services available to you, academic and otherwise. Some of these services are outlined here.
These are some tips and tricks on how to do well in class. (These are general tips that can help you succeed in learning!)
Take care of yourself. Do your best to maintain a healthy lifestyle this semester by eating well, exercising, avoiding drugs and alcohol, getting enough sleep and taking some time to relax. This will help you achieve your goals and cope with stress.
All of us benefit from support during times of struggle. You are not alone. There are many helpful resources available on campus and an important part of the college experience is learning how to ask for help. Take the time to learn about all that is available and take advantage of it. Ask for support sooner rather than later - this always helps.
If you or anyone you know experiences any academic stress, difficult life events, or feelings like anxiety or depression, we strongly encourage you to seek support. Consider reaching out to a friend, faculty or family member you trust for assistance connecting to the support that can help. Counseling and Psychological Services (CaPS) is here for you: call 412-268-2922 and visit their website. Over 25% of students reach out to CaPS some time during their time at CMU.
If you or someone you know is feeling suicidal or in danger of self-harm,
call someone immediately, day or night:

If you have a disability and have an accommodations letter from the Disability Resources office, I encourage you to discuss your accommodations and needs with me as early in the semester as possible. I will work with you to ensure that accommodations are provided as appropriate. If you suspect that you may have a disability and would benefit from accommodations but are not yet registered with the Office of Disability Resources, I encourage you to contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
