Husky Hour, Counseling Services Workshops and Groups

Know students who are struggling or just need a little extra support? Get them the help they need through Husky Hour, Counseling Services Workshops, or Counseling Services Groups.

Counseling Services has partnered with departments across the University to offer one-hour workshops—Husky Hour—from 4-5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the Library East Reading Room.

These workshops will help students improve skills like communication, stress relief, academic planning, life balance, formula-based studying and good food choices. These events are free and often offer incentives like food and prizes for students. Feel free to bring your class to one of these events, offer extra credit for student attendance, or simply recommend it to your students as a great way to gain additional skills needed for a successful semester.

Counseling Services workshops and groups offer a more in-depth and intimate learning experience for students. The workshops are designed as 3 or 4-week series, exploring topics like motivation, the science of relationships, emotional resilience, taming habits, stress reduction and mindfulness. Groups offer weekly support in areas like grief, depression, anxiety, academic stress, motivation and more.

Visit here to download PDFs of the spring schedule for each of these programs. While all of these events are designed for a student audience, staff and faculty are welcome to attend Husky Hour. We ask for your assistance in marketing these opportunities to students.
