Post-secondary education has many advantages. Many students flourish in this new and unique environment. Others feel stressed in the absence of an established support system, experience anxiety related to the need to make critical decisions (independently and almost daily) that will impact their success and become exhausted by the academic demands. Being prepared academically is not always enough. Students must be prepared for the entire college experience.
This deck was created to address this need. To assist students to prepare for and respond to the challenges of college life. Use it alone to become aware of and begin learning the Skills & Attitudes that may prepare you for the transition. Use it in small groups in the dorm to start conversations and connect with others who might be struggling. Campus counseling centers could use It to help coach students to build resilience and move past the obstacles to their education.

BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.
Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them. We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.
Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?
Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.
