Push back against perfectionism: Setting unrealistic goals can affect mental health and lead to poor academic performance. Sound familiar? Check out the October issue of Student Health 101 for tips on setting realistic goals and avoiding the stress of unattainable perfection. This month’s issue also includes ways to incorporate meditation into your morning routine and a helpful good-roomie guide for keeping the peace at home.

New campus safety videos: The Auraria Campus Police Department (ACPD) has released two videos with tips for making campus safer. The first video offers advice on how to anonymously text a tip directly to the ACPD. The second video includes detailed information on how to keep yourself and your belongings safe, how to respond to an active threat & how to prepare for severe weather.
