Conquering College Anxiety
“Conquering College Anxiety” is a program designed to highlight the simplest, most practical ways that students can develop skills that will help them feel more empowered and capable of achieving whatever they want while they’re in college.
STUDENTS AREN’T THE PROBLEM.
We live in unprecedented times. We face serious challenges. Lately, those challenges have seemed so monumental that many people are starting to lose hope.
- Young people believe the American Dream is a myth.
- College student anxiety and depression are at all-time highs.
- 18-22 year olds report the highest levels of loneliness of all Americans.
TECHNOLOGY ISN’T THE PROBLEM.
The great challenge we all face is that technology is evolving faster than we are evolving culturally.
The current generation of students are the product of that gap between technological advance and cultural lag. The unprecedented access that technology gives them to, well, nearly everything, has allowed us to overlook the things that technology cannot do:
- Access does not guarantee connection
- Information does not guarantee wisdom
- Awareness does not guarantee justice
HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS
We can help students. If we view the challenges above as skill deficits, then we can focus on skill development as a solution.

Paul uses technology to poll the audience about specific challenges they face, and tailors his presentation toward the information he gathers so that students are getting practical applications of the core content.
