About Workshops

Workshops are no-commitment opportunities to learn and practice different coping skills and wellness habits aimed towards improving the mental health of college students. Prioritize your wellness by putting in one of our workshops into your weekly schedule. Everyone is welcome and no appointment or weekly commitment is required.

Please make sure you show up on time, as space is limited and no one will be permitted to join that session once it begins.

All workshops run from 1/14–4/24 unless otherwise noted.

Learn ways to boost relaxation and resiliency skills to increase your emotional capacities. Together we will discuss and practice ways to enhance these areas, as well as your grit, gratitude and overall well-being.

Take a Hike is designed for students who find themselves stressed, sad, lonely, disconnected, are experiencing social anxiety, or just need a way to improve wellness. Workshop leaders will lead participants on various walks around campus, weather permitting, offering opportunity for connection with self, others, and nature. Sometimes a better mood or head space is just a walk and conversation away.

Come join us to improve your mood and overall sense of wellness. We welcome people of all accessibility levels.
