Bellevue University Announces Free Webinar Series for Military and Veteran Students to Help Handle Stress During the Pandemic

BELLEVUE, Nebraska – Bellevue University will host a free webinar series focused on dealing with common stressors associated with daily life during the pandemic.

The Bellevue University Student Veteran Services Series is free and open to the community and is tailored to the concerns of military students, including those who are soon to or recently transitioned and are balancing career, family, and personal and professional goals. Each session of the series will feature a different theme.

“This series will be especially beneficial for military members going to school and their families,” Cody Choquette, Bellevue University student and Commander of the Student Veterans Organization, said. “During the pandemic, people might experience extra stress, so we wanted to provide a resource for military families to help them relieve some of those added pressures.”

The first 45-minute session will be held Thursday, March 4 at 5 p.m. CST. The topic will be on resiliency. The event will feature two speakers: Bellevue University faculty member Dr. Jon Kayne and Resilience Trainer and Performance Consultant Neil Wattier.

“In this inspiring 45-minute conversation, Dr. Jon Kayne will discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and how it can affect the demands of work, family and education goals,” Jerome Richardson, Director of the Military Veteran Services Center, said. “Resiliency training coach Neil Wattier will share ways to become more resilient to the constant stressors and daily challenges of this time.”

Future topics and dates will be announced at a later date.
