Talk to ME: Podcasts about Surviving in College

The audio podcasts listed below have been written for students by students from the Middle Earth Peer Assistance Program. Their aim is to provide students with basic information and resources concerning critical questions and issues which affect college students today. With many of these issues, students are too hesitant or too frightened to talk or seek help openly.

If you would like to talk further about any of the podcast topics, please call the Middle Earth Hotline at 518-442-5777. The hotline is open from 12 Noon to 12 Midnight Monday through Thursday and 24 hours from 12 Noon on Friday to 12 Midnight on Sunday when classes at UAlbany are in session. Services are free and confidential.
