Balancing Your Academic and Social Lifestyle
Thursday,  February 27th, 2:00-3:00pm
This workshop will explore how to balance your schoolwork with other aspects of your life, including the social and extra curricular activities that are available to you at GMC. Students will use the “Life Wheel” to look at the different pieces of their life and how their wheel may or may not be as balanced as they would like. We all know that a wheel must be balanced in order for it to roll. The same applies to our lives. As a group, we will explore the pieces of our lives and see how they fit into our wheel. We will then look at other ways of making our lives more academically and socially balanced. Location: Special Collections Room, 2nd floor of Griswold Library
