Test anxiety is a major health problem on college campuses, affecting nearly 22% of all students, according to the College Student Health Association. The resources that the University of Dayton offers to students about test anxiety were reviewed for the effectiveness of their advertising methods. From these resources, we found that there is room for improvement in access and advertisement of information. Students from freshman through senior as well as adults and professors were interviewed for their opinions and experience with test anxiety. Resources for test anxiety at other universities were compiled and used as inspiration for ideas to improve resources for test anxiety at UD. An improved brochure was created which includes symptoms of test anxiety and tips to overcome it as well as to inform students about resources at Counseling Center and the Office of Learning Resources for students.
