Nickles & Dimes

If you are able to read, this means you are literate. When we understand money, and how to make it work to our financial advantage, then we are financially literate. Many people are highly educated and yet struggle financially, go broke, file bankruptcy, etc. Why? Because they don't have a working knowledge of basic financial principles. Come and learn some basic financial strategies and concepts so you can create a solid financial foundation for your future.

A Fish Out of Water

Are you feeling lost? Are you missing family, friends and life back home? Sometimes the change from home to college life is not easy or what you expected. You're not the only one on campus fedling this way. In fact, it's perfectly normal to feel overwhelmed, anxious, and uncomfortable.

Join us for a relaxed gathering, some munchies and drinks, and let's talk about those feelings. We're here to listen and offer ways to help you feel more comfortable.

Making Sense of Grief

There is no right or wrong way to express grief. Every bereavement we experience affects us in different ways; some losses are brief, like losing a special memento from our grandmother, while others, like the death of someone we love, have a much more profound and long-lasting impact. This workshop is meant to help you develop an awareness of the variety of reactions grief evokes, what complicates grief, and the differences between coping and healing.

Don't Let the Stress Blues Get You Down

Sometimes we get caught up in our stress, finding ourselves unable to focus on anything except the stresses surrounding us. Too much stress leaves us feeling under pressure, detrimentally affecting our thoughts, feelings, how we feel physically, and our ability to achieve success. Learning how to recognize stress, how we react to it, how to prevent, and how to reduce and manage it can make us more successful. This workshop is aimed at understanding and normalizing college stress. Most college students feel stressed or overwhelmed at some point. We will explore normal stress and how to manage it.
