Fall 2022 Groups and workshops

Thriving on Campus
This series of gatherings across campus is designed to engage students in wellness activities to enhance connection with themselves and the campus community. A number of THRIVE topics will be addressed with a primary focus on providing a space for students to meet or reconnect with one another. This is a weekly gathering not a confidential counseling space. Gatherings will occur in various locations throughout campus, but participants will meet on the benches in front of the Bailey Health Center building each week.
Facilitator: Dr. Liz Alogna
Thursdays at 12:15 pm starting September 15th

Healing the Heart
