Rising to the Challenge of College Workshops

Does your college student or graduating senior experience:

  • Concerns about academic success?
  • Fears about dating, social situations or making new friends?
  • Worries about new autonomy?
  • Worries about making positive life-choices?

If so, Rising to the Challenge Workshops can help!

Many teens worry about having an optimal experience in college. They worry that college will be filled with the same troubles they experienced in high school. This workshop, offered by the clinical staff of the Counseling Center, will help soon-to-be college students learn tools and skills on how to be healthy and successful in college, such as:

  • Accepting self-responsibility and entering young adulthood
  • Strategies for managing stress
  • Socializing and Dating
  • The party culture and addiction
  • Dealing with anxiety/depression

Participants of the Rising to the Challenge Workshops will create a practical and healthy vision for their college experience and the means to achieve that vision. New, current or returning college students are welcome to register for the workshop series.
