Adulting 101

Definition of Adulting

Ever have that moment when you're looking for an adult, but then you realize you're an adult? So you look around for an older adult, an adultier adult, someone better at adulting than you? The thing is...You can be that adult! Come to Adulting 101 events and workshops held throughout the school year!

Each quarter we will list events and workshops designed to help you develop life skills as well as have a regularly updated calendar of Adulting 101-type programs happening around campus! These programs will hopefully help you thrive in your relationships, tackle problem solving and decision making, manage emotions, provide guidance on healthy living, and help you find life purpose, meaning, and identity.
