The role of the Student Academic Success Graduate Assistant (GA) is to facilitate
Honors students in achieving their academic goals. There are different kinds of barriers
that can obstruct academic goals, such as not knowing how to study effectively for
a course, or even things like lack of sleep or getting excessively nervous before
a test. The Student Academic Success GA can help you navigate these barriers so that
you can reach your academic goals!Stephanie Lindeman, one of our Student Academic Success GAs, hosts a weekly #HonorsMindfulnessMondays series on Instagram. Practicing mindfulness can help students focus, study, and sleep
better, but it can also reduce reduce stress levels in their bodies! With each episode,
Stephanie guides viewers through different exercises and challenges them to practice
on their own! Take a look at the videos on our Instagram account!
