It’s late November, which can only mean one thing—the end of the semester is right around the corner. Compiled in this list are resources and events to help graduate students power through the most wonderful, and most stressful, time of the year. Writing well means using our resources well.


Do you need…


help finding additional sources for your research?

Email Kristy Nowak at Morgan Library. She can assist by connecting you with subject-specific librarians and answer general research questions.

a quiet place to work?

Reserve a study room at Morgan Library. You can reserve up to three hours a day one week in advance.

tech assistance?

If you just need a tech tune-up, you can access the Computer Diagnostic Center for free at Morgan Library. If you need some extensive help, the Computer Repair Center is located at RamTech in Lory Student Center.

aid securing groceries? 

Writing well requires that we eat well. Rams Against Hunger provides multiple resources to students, faculty, and staff experiencing food insecurity. The Lory Student Center (room 140) is home to the main Rams Against Hunger Food Pantry. They are closed Saturday-Tuesday and open from 3-6p on Wednesdays and Thursdays and from 9a-12p on Fridays. There are additional Rams Against Hunger Pocket Pantries proximate to campus. You can find those locations here.

a mental health check-in?

Writing well also means caring for our mental health. SilverCloud Health offers self-guided online programs based on Cognitive Behavioral therapy to help you enhance well-being, manage anxiety and depression, improve your sleep, boost your body image, and more. The Nod App offers suggestions for strengthening social ties using evidence-based practices. These online mental health resources are available to you 24/7.

If you or someone you know is having thoughts of harming themselves or others, please call 970-494-4200 (SummitStone Health Partners, available 24/7).

Graduate students can access additional wellness resources through the Wellness Competencies webpage on Graduate School website.


Remember, you have CSU Writes cheering you on through this time! We are looking forward to the respite ahead and sending you strength to finish the semester strong.
