Statement of Problem
Many students with the fashion Communication program are experiencing stress because of a heavy workload. Ryerson’s Counselling Services needs to find a way to solve this problem.
Statement of Purpose
The purpose of this report is to outline all the problems that Ryerson students may face and to help Ryerson students cope with the high stress level. This report will investigate methods that students will be able to use to help manage the stresses of school. It will outline the causes that affect students the most at school. For example, lack of proper time management skills, not enough sleep, not eating properly, and the lack of internal and external supports will be examined. This report will also outline ways in which student stress can be addressed and managed correctly and effectively. This report is very important because it will allow us to see what the causes are creating unmanageable stress among students.
