Stress has major influences with students in the college environment. With the rigorous demand of work found throughout the quarter system, students are required to balance their entire lives, including academics and studying, social life and relationships, and personal health and well being.

The purpose of this Senior Project is to determine how students define stress, how each category above relates to one another, and finally some ways that students go about stress management and de-stressing. To do this, a survey was conducted analyzing student stressors, a documentary was created that told the experiences of Cal Poly students in relation to stress, and learning objectives were created and defined to support the documentary.
