Your Student Support Site
BRCC’s student population is a mixture of traditional and non-traditional students.
You may be…
- coming straight from high school to college and will be trying to adjust to changes in your personal life, living environment, and academic demands
- trying to balance the demands of work, family, and school or starting college for the first time after raising a family
- returning to school to learn new job skills or wanting to upgrade your current employment skills
- meeting the challenges associated with being an international student
As a student, you may be attempting to manage a number of variables in your life. For instance, you may have a full or part-time job in addition to school. You may be involved in school and community activities or volunteer work. You may have a circle of friends to do things with or be a parent with childcare responsibilities.
At times, life can also toss unexpected circumstances your way, making it tough to manage everything. Your degree of stress may increase, testing the limits of your coping strategies. Maybe you have supportive resources in your life to help you cope with things or perhaps your resources are limited.
If you are experiencing events that are interfering with your academics at BRCC, our Student Services counselors are available to help you connect with appropriate services for personal help in your community. Links for service providers are listed for you in the left-hand menu. In addition, you can view information about topics such as Stress Management, Depression, Anxiety, and Suicide at this site.
BRCC has found the various sites listed in the left menu to be helpful, but the College assumes no responsibility for the content or accuracy of the information provided at the sites.
