The group will meet every other Tuesday, beginning Oct. 24, in Room 311, O’Shaughnessy Educational Center. Dates for fall semester are Oct 24, Nov. 7, Nov. 21 and Dec. 12.

The Grief/Loss Group
This group will provide a forum for students to share feelings related to experiences of grief or loss. Meet with others in a supportive atmosphere, and gain a better understanding of how to manage through emotionally difficult times. The group will meet weekly on Tuesdays, from 11:30 to 12:30 p.m. in Room 356, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.
