Balancing life and school can be stressful. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, burned out, or just stuck in life, we invite you to join our Feel Better Fast workshop series. It takes place every Tuesday from 4-5pm and students are welcome to join at any time! Each week we will cover a different topic related to mental health and give practical ways you can take better care of what matters most - YOU!
New Student Orientation (NSO) includes important information on key resources and strategies for success, plus a campus tour. New students are encouraged to attend an orientation that best matches the campus you will be attending their first year. Your Advisor can provide more information on these specific sessions.
