Cook Counseling Center is dedicated to aiding students in achieving a successful college career. While mental health and counseling services are Cook Counseling Center’s main focus, academic support for students is one of its main priorities. In this capacity, the counseling center provides Wellness Workshops that focus on specific, academic related issues, such as stress management and test anxiety; and information on how to improve study skills, including time management tips and concentration techniques. Cook Counseling Center also provides information on graduate school testing. Academic support covers many different aspects of academic success, but it also includes academic relief. Cook Counseling Center works with students whose college success has been hindered by mental illness or great mental stress. Academic Support for Students | Cook Counseling Center | Virginia Tech

As the fall semester comes to a close, I find myself having lots of conversations about finding your peace in the Academy. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because so many people contact me with the same problem: they are passionate about their scholarship, but they're struggling to figure out how to be in the Ivory Tower. In other words, they love their work, but find themselves working 60-80 hours a week without making progress on the very writing projects they love and sensing they are sacrificing their health and relationships in the process. Trying to figure out how to make it all work is a common struggle for new faculty and trying to figure out if you want to make it work is a common question at every academic rank (from graduate student to endowed chairs). So as we head into the holiday break, it’s a great time to take a step back and think about some steps you can take to find your peace in the Academy.
