Generation Stress

It’s no surprise that college can be stressful for students, but a new Ohio State University study shows just how many students feel the pressure – 70 percent of students surveyed admitted to being stressed about their personal finances, and nearly 60 percent said they worry about having enough to pay for school. Martha Bradley, senior associate vice president for Academic Affairs, knows how stressed today’s students are. She oversees a program, believed to be the first of its kind in the country, in which advisors seek out students and help them with all aspects of their lives – from financial worries to childcare to academic advising and everything in between. The program aims to help students succeed academically by taking care of them as a whole person. Bradley is available to discuss the program and how its unusual approach has made a difference in students’ lives.
