During the first four weeks of the semester, first-year students must participate in an extension of the orientation process. Students will participate in rotating workshops during the first four Thursdays of the semester at 12 noon. Wellness Center staff will present the following workshops:

This interactive workshop will provide a broad overview of essential things you need to know about substance use. You will learn important information about reducing the negative consequences of substance use.
Healthy Communication and Boundary Setting in Interpersonal Relationships
