Recovering Your Academic Wellness
The Division of Undergraduate Education affirms that academic wellness includes engagement
in your education, satisfaction in your major, performance in classes, relationships
with instructors and peers, and degree progress. Your academic standing is one part
of your academic wellness and can help you to determine if you are on or off track.
Overall academic wellness derives from feeling challenged and excited to learn, asking
for help, and maintaining a sense of joy and purpose as you work toward graduation.
When you get the elements of academic wellness on track, you begin a beautiful upward
cycle of improved satisfaction and performance.
At Stony Brook, there are numerous resources and support for students. The Student Success website is a great place to get connected and below is a curated list of opportunities that can boost your academic recovery.
