Local Professor Offers Top SUMMER STRESS-BUSTING Strategies


Keiser University Psychology Professor Robin Schupper, Psy.D.


West Palm Beach, Florida – May 2019 Keiser University psychology professor Dr. Robin Schupper reminds us that although the summer is when we anticipate happy events such as graduation ceremonies, weddings, and sometimes preparing for a move to college, stress can still rear its ugly head.


Her points include:

  • Change of any kind is uncomfortable.  We may not like to be bored, but we are hard-wired as humans to rely on the known, the predictable, and the routine.  When we are moved out of our typical comfort zone, our nervous system goes on alert, whether the push comes from negative or positive sources.
  • The Holmes-Rahe is one of the more widely used stress inventories, and lists marriage as the 7th most stressful life event, with retirement as 10th, pregnancy as 12th, and outstanding personal achievement as 25th.  Graduating or starting school is 27th, and vacation is 41st.
  • With every positive achievement comes the inevitable question: What’s next?  We spend so much time focusing on getting through classes, working toward a promotion, getting to vacation time, and planning weddings and other events that we overlook the unknown of what we are to do afterward, and the potential letdown that occurs when everything we have worked so hard for is over and done.

In order to mitigate summer stress Schupper recommends we:

  • Embrace the “new normal.”  Accept that life is different and that the experience has probably changed us in some positive ways
  • Take time when working toward goals to think about what life might look like afterward, and what we may wish to further achieve.
  • Make a plan for what comes next, but first, take some time to relax and to appreciate what we’ve overcome and how joyous that feels.

My instructors believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. Student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. Everyone was dedicated to my overall success.

Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.

The instructors at Keiser University impacted my life. They believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. KU helped to prepare me for the real world and got me to where I am today.

Justin Pugh

If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.

The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.

The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.

It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University.  Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors.  The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.

Annelise Merriner, PA-C

Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made.  The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly.  The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.

I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you.  I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.

After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education.  Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.

Laurie Williams

Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.

Ryan Bushey

Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.

My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.

The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.

I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
