The day after Labor Day can be a rude awakening for students. It means summer is over and it's time to head back to class.
On Tuesday, NewsChannel 7 headed to UW-Marathon County to speak with students about their back to school jitters.
"I'm really nervous," said Brock Zietz, a first year student. "All of my friends are at a different school so this is a whole new thing for me.
Students said that some of the biggest stressors are homework, being able to find classes, and making friends.
UWMC counselor Kandace Elmergreen says she sees a number of students who are individuating from their families for the first time and trying to be on their own a bit more. She says it's important to have a plan in place when times get tough. The counseling center is a completely confidential option for students having concerns.
"We can work with these students to help process some of the emotional distress and keep them in school," she says.
