STRESS AND ANXIETY

Anxiety is a normal response to stressful situations. A certain amount of anxiety is essential for performing at our best. It is only when we have too much anxiety that it interferes with functioning.  The anxiety expresses itself through emotions, physical symptoms, thoughts, and behaviors. If your student is experiencing levels of anxiety that is causing significant distress or is interfering with functioning, encourage your student to seek help from the Counseling Center. Our services are free to UCM students.  Call 660-543-4060 or visit our website at www.ucmo.edu/cc for more information.

ENCOURAGING STUDENT INVOLVEMENT

The Office of Student Activities,www.ucmo.edu/current-students/student-experience/office-of-student-activities/, is committed to extending education beyond the classroom by offering students experiences that will be rewarding and enriching to them personally, intellectually, socially, and physically. The experiences they gain through their involvement will stay with them throughout their college years.
