UTRGV student Robert Ramirez is making a short film for his honors project in a Stress Management class and looking for student volunteers who are willing to be interviewed. The film project is about stress: exploring the ways in which UTRGV students experience and cope with stress and students’ views about the positive and negative effects of stress.

Interviews will be kept short (no more than 15 minutes) and will take place over the next few weeks. If you’d like to be a part of this project, or have questions about it, please email him no later than Friday, Oct 13th.
