Realizing Your Self-Transformation

Are you different from who you were after leaving home and entering college? As you encounter various challenges and experiences away from home, your roles, behaviors, and values may change without you noticing. Come to this workshop and share your thoughts with other students as you reflect on your experiences. You will become more self-aware of who you are at this point and who you want to be in the future.
