Series Description
Coming of Age is an adventure, especially for college students who are faced with balancing growing responsibilities and well-being while embarking on “…a journey of self-discovery.” This series aims to facilitate the process of Coming of Age and equip students with the tools needed to beat the dreaded "Freshmen 15". For remaining attendees, the series will also explore the value of knowing one's own cultural history, the importance of personal health and wellness, the interconnectedness of humanity and sociological development.

In service,
