Secrets of a Successful Student
03/03/2021 ZOOM
There are some things any student can do in order to improve his/her performance in college. This session covers a few of the “secrets” that successful students employ, even if the content seems impossible!

Health & Wellness
03/10/2021 ZOOM
Many of us frequently experience the connection between our state of mind and our physical health. Often, that comes in the form of mental stress impacting how we feel. Physical wellness promotes proper care of our bodies for optimal health and functioning. Overall physical wellness encourages the balance of physical activity, nutrition, and mental wellbeing to keep your body in top condition. Not only will you sharpen your thinking and learning abilities, but you will also enhance your sense of self-esteem and self-control.

Heuristics – More Than Meets the Eye
03/17/2021 ZOOM
What are heuristics? Some of you may be applying this cognitive shortcut subconsciously. This presentation will define the components of heuristics, as well as shed light on how this approach can be problematic in social situations.

Financial Aid Basics
03/24/2021 ZOOM
Financial Aid can be very confusing and sometimes overwhelming. You don't need to be an expert, but you do need a basic understanding of college costs and financial aid. This seminar will cover the basics of financial aid and general guidance for students. We will provide an overview of the FAFSA, How and Where to Apply for Scholarships, Loan Limits and When and Where to Seek Help.
