Scholarships Are Important!

Scholarships provide an opportunity for students to earn an education with assistance from an outside source. Scholarships can fill the gap. Scholarships can help decrease the amount of loans needed to complete college.

Points to Remember: Be sure to review the general eligibility requirements, and the application instructions and deadline dates before submitting the application.

View a list of current scholarships you may be eligible to apply for on our additional scholarship opportunities page.

 

 

 

 

 

Weekly Wellness Corner

The Weekly Wellness Corner is brought to you by the Counseling Center – here, you’ll find content, tips, tricks, programs, and resources to help you thrive as a Post Eagle! 

 

Let’s talk about the importance of sleep! 

Did you know? Poor sleep affects mental health by disrupting our circadian rhythms and interfering with our normal sleep stages, thereby throwing our bodies and our brains off-kilter. A sleep-deficient brain has a decreased ability to make emotional judgments and incorporate multiple pieces of information into a decision. 

Sleep is sacred and should not be forced. Creating your own sleep routine, whether that is drinking tea, reading a book, or journaling; will help prepare you for a restful night’s sleep!

BIG REMINDER: Your bed should only be associated with sleep so refrain from working or staring at your device for too long before getting your sleep.
