The WRC would like to take a moment today to personally thank Colleen Ritchie. For those that don't know, Colleen Ritchie is the one responsible for making the Student Giving Campaign possible. Her generosity provided the funds that 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place received for participating in the campaign (a total of $3,500). On top of that, Colleen also agreed to match all Tel-Alumni donations 1-to-1. This gave the WRC an extra $1,393 to donate to our cause.

Thank you so much Colleen! Your generosity will not go unnoticed!

Anxiety is often brought on by the stresses or experiences of everyday life. It can be diagnosed by having severe symptoms lasting more than a few days or even up to six months. The onset of this disorder can be gradual, as well as sudden. When GAD is mild, people can function at a social capacity however at its peak the simplest tasks become increasingly difficult to perform.Possible factors contributing could be socioeconomic status, gender, race, and family.
