Spring 2019 Student Events and Programs:

Events are subject to change so please come back to check for updates including dates, times, and locations. This list is also not complete. More will be added as we continually plan for our community!

Speak Freely!

Many people get anxious when speaking in a variety of situations, including participating in class discussions, giving a formal presentation, interviewing for jobs, and networking at career fairs. This type of anxiety is not uncommon and can be mastered with some simple cognitive-behavioral strategies, relaxation techniques and practice.  You will learn concrete strategies and also have the opportunity to share a brief narrative with confidence. If this sounds of interest, please join us for a two-part workshop in a relaxed/supportive environment. Facilitated by: Allyson Cherkasky, PhD, Associate Professor, Counseling and Behavioral Health Department & Meridith Apfelbaum, MS, Assistant Dean of Students (You are welcome to bring your lunch)
