COGS Workshop: Dealing with the Winter Blues

February 7, 2020, 12:30-2:00 pm in Chittenden Hall, Room 110

We have survived the winter so far and are approaching the time when even people who grew up in Michigan wonder why they live here.  The skies are grey for weeks at a time and we often feel trapped inside of our homes or cubicles or labs.  Come huddle together with other graduate students as we talk about practical strategies to manage our mood and energy during this challenging time. 

Join us for practical tips and engaging discussions! Workshop is facilitated by Meg Akehi & Olivia Scott from MSU Counseling and Psychiatry Services (CAPS). Lunch will be provided. RSVP is appreciated: https://bit.ly/356GgAb

COGS Workshop: Managing Transitions

The most consistent part of life is constant change.  You may be transitioning into your graduate program, moving to a new state, changing directions in your career, or making a change in your personal life.  You may be in a new phase of your program or you may be getting ready to graduate and enter the job market.  Transitions are a special kind of stress.  Come talk with us about ways to navigate and manage the stress and anxiety that often come with change.
