Support for Cyclones
We know there are a lot resources on campus and it can be hard to figure out where to start. These resources are a great starting point for you. They focus on helping you connect to other resources and share more information about what can help you be successful.
We get it, you have really busy schedules and it can be hard to prioritize fitting everything in. We know time and schedules can stand in the way to engaging in activities that support your wellbeing. To help – we created a series of self-guided programs and have some resources available that you can do on your time!
College is hard, filled with many highs and sometimes some lows. Staff are here to help assist you throughout your adventure at ISU. ISU has many resources available to you to help with health and wellbeing concerns, social connection, and more.
