ALANIS MORISSETTE
Alanis Morissette, Canadian singer-songwriter,
has won 12 Juno Awards and seven Grammys and
has sold more than 55 million albums worldwide.
While on tour to promote her platinum album,
Jagged Little Pill, Morissette began to feel
helpless. “Schedule-wise, my health and peace of
mind weren’t a priority,” she said. “There had
been this dissonance in the midst of all the
external success. Because on the one hand, I was
expected to be overjoyed by it, and at the same
time I was disillusioned by it.” To combat her
depression, Morissette traveled to India and
Cuba, read, competed in triathlons, and
reconnected with friends. Feeling better within a
year, she went on to produce a second hit album.
THE STUDENT WHO IS A RETURNING VETERAN
As active members of the military reintegrate into civilian
life, many are returning to higher education. They often
bring valuable perspectives, unique needs and a culture that
may be unfamiliar to faculty, staff and classmates. To
facilitate this transition, many have been working to better
understand the challenges faced by student veterans.
