Performing at Your Peak
An interactive session that will explore the obstacles that hinder students from obtaining their “peak” academic performance including lack of exercise, excessive stress, alcohol/drug use, emotional difficulties and procrastination.  This session will provide an opportunity to talk with current students who have found ways to navigate the system at Rutgers-Camden and take advantage of the services offered.
