Stall Street Journals 2009-2010

  • Breakfast Provides Brain Power
    Stall Street Journal
    Many college students elect to get those extra few minutes of sleep rather than eat breakfast. Others skip breakfast as a form of weight control. Both approaches are not optimal for learning in the classroom and may set one up for patterns of excess caloric intake later in the day.
  • Fitness for a Lifetime
    Stall Street Journal
    Exercise is important to keep both your body and mind "in shape." Too often we get busy and one of the first things we eliminate is exercise. That may not be the best strategy because those who exercise have fewer health problems and can manage their calendars and stress levels much more efficiently.
  • Flu Facts for 2009-2010
    Stall Street Journal
    The 2009 H1N1 or Swine Flu will affect college campuses this fall and winter. Regular seasonal flu strains will likely circulate this winter, as well. The flu virus is spread easily when students are together, in residence halls, dining areas, classes and social situations.
  • Helping A Friend Who is Experiencing Dating Violence
    Stall Street Journal
    Many college students are emotionally, physically, or sexually abused by their intimate partners each year. If you are concerned about a friend you probably have good reason to be. Violence and abuse in relationships usually continues and often gets worse over time if no action is taken to stop it.
  • Safe Ride: Traveller
    Stall Street Journal
    Traveller started as a student-run initiative. Following a student death in a drunk driving accident, students became concerned for each other’s safety. Traveller began as the third line of defense to getting students home safely. First, students were expected to remain sober, then to call a sober friend, and lastly to call upon Traveller to help them get home safely.
  • Sleep: The Elusive Ingredient to Success
    Stall Street Journal
    Pulling an all-nighter is a “right of passage” for college students...but is it the healthiest way to approach being a successful student? The research says no. Students who pull all-nighters had lower GPA’s compared with students who never stay up all night.
  • Study Drugs: Are They All You Think They Are?
    Stall Street Journal
    When used by students who don’t have a legitimate medical need for medications such as Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta and Dexedrine,, they give an unfair advantage comparable to the advantage some athletes seek by using anabolic steroids to enhance their performance. This is widely regarded as a form of academic cheating.
