Director’s Corner: Mid-semester progress check and Kappa Alpha Psi scholarship information

CASE Scholars, families and supporters,

I hope your semester is shaping up to be educational, fun and exciting. At this point in the semester, I want to highlight a number of resources for your personal and academic success:

  • Soon (February 28th), you will receive a link to your Mid-Semester Progress Check. We ask that you send it to the faculty members/TA’s in all of your courses. Please utilize this opportunity to take stock in your academic success at MU. CASE staff will follow up with you if your professors note any attendance or performance issues. If you require any immediate academic assistance please consult with the Spring 2022 Tiger Tutor Schedule HERE.
  • The MU Counseling Center in partnership with the MU Wellness Resource Center are nurturing minority student wellness. They will be hosting Well-Being Wednesday @ the Rec. Come learn how to get a good night’s sleep, create a sleeping door hanger and make a custom blend of sleep tea. Plus, enter to win an electric kettle and mug! Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 11 a.m.
  • Also, the MU Wellness Resource Center has a wealth of ways to manage stress, exercise, meditation and volunteering. In addition, the campus has a new app called “Sanvello” which is designed to provide resources for stress management, anxiety and depression. To Download the Sanvello app, just search for Sanvello in the App Store or Google Play and create an account using your university e-mail to unlock the free premium features.
  • The Jefferson City Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi is awarding two scholarships in the amount of $2,000 to scholars attending college in Mid-Missouri (Mizzou)! As a CASE Scholar, you should have received the scholarship announcement and the application in your email inbox, but just in case, it is linked in this message.


I do hope these resources are helpful and relevant. As always, please let the CASE team know if you have any additional needs or questions.
