Events in the morning at the Center for Contemplative Studies
Presentations begin at noon with a discussion of collegiate pressures and positive mental health;
"Managing Stress and Pressure in Athletics and Academics" - Are you a student athlete or someone who works hard to balance the academic demands of being a college student? We often overlook the signs of stress, anxiety, and mental health issues. In this session, we will be discussing pressures and stressors that go along with being an athlete, and a college student– and what you can do to manage balance.
At 7:00pm, Kevin Hines will present his compelling story of survival in the Madeleine Wing Adler Theater. This is a powerful presentation that you won't want to miss, and it's FREE for WCU Students, Faculty and Staff, but you must order a ticket. Review the sample video and get your ticket now!:

It just made me realize that I share a lot of common experiences with my fellow classmates. We must get to know each other and our stories rather than judging on first glance.
