Seasonal Nature of Student Struggles

Students, no matter their age or year in college, experience varying levels of stress as they continue to grow and develop into the person they are becoming. Whether your student is new to the residence halls, living in off-campus housing for the first time, experiencing your family in a new way, or studying abroad in a new culture, there are changes to be negotiated and dealt with. These transitions usually follow a seasonal cycle.

Weekly Meditation Opportunities

The Project for Mindfulness and Contemplation, the Office of Spirituality and the Wellness Center has multiple opportunities for students, faculty, the public and staff to engage in the practice of meditation. All sessions are free of charge and no previous experience is required. We encourage all to join, whether you currently practice or if you just need a break from the stress of everyday life.
