This interactive workshop, provided by Students Advocating for Mental Health Empowerment (SAMHE's) Peer Educators, gives participants an opportunity to identify their unique stressors, learn about the good and bad effects of stress and how to identify them. Additionally, attendees will discuss specific, manageable tools and tasks to start managing their stress.

Each year, universities across the country celebrate transfer students on their campuses. New Student and Family Programs, alongside transfer student leaders, will offer various events, social opportunities and sessions throughout the week to support and celebrate transfer students on campus!
