I’m Going to College… Now What?


Are you excited to go to college in the fall but secretly freaking out about all of the unknowns?


Wouldn’t it be great to know exactly what to expect and how to deal with it before you even arrive on campus?


Introducing a group series for recent high school grads and soon-to-be college freshmen…


Senior year is over, and you’ve got nowhere to go but UP.


 Everyone says college is supposed to be the best four years of your life (no pressure!). Here’s your chance to make college your time to shine. Take a break from working on your tan, packing your entire life into several suitcases, and attending farewell parties and come to four action-packed group meetings to do the following:


  • Learn how to deal with stress, sadness, and relationship issues (3 common reasons students ride the struggle bus) so that you can make friends, make it to class, stay sane, and have fun all at the same time.

  • Practice managing your time and staying organized so that you can get all of your assignments done on time without pulling all nighters or pulling out your hair.

  • Pinpoint what you’re already good at so you can use your strengths to your advantage both in college and when you’re done (sorry to bring this up, but that time will be here before you know it!). Keep that momentum going when you step out into the “real world”.

  • Hear what college is like from people who have already been there so that you can get inside scoop and pointers that would have been helpful for the rest of us to know before we got to college. Learn from people who learned the hard way so you don’t have to.

You will finish with confidence, excitement, and an “I’ve got this!” attitude towards your next chapter.

Only 8 spaces available- don’t wait to reserve your spot!
