Announcements

  • Do you identify as trans, gender non-conforming, or gender-questioning

    Want to share your experience with fellow students who do too?  

    We’re starting a Wellness group to do just that!

    Ursinus’s Wellness Center invites you to join our Trans Support Group.  Ursinus students who identify as transgender, gender non-conforming, questioning, or other gender variant identity are welcome to join this is a student-centered support group.  We will come together to explore gender identity and support one another on the issues that may impact trans college students. 

    The first group will be held on the week of March 12 and will aim to run through the remainder of Spring 2018 semester. We are asking for a commitment to attend all groups this semester with the understanding that situations do arise where you may need to be absent.  All sessions are free and confidential.

    Please email Kristen English, PsyD at kenglish@ursinus.edu to arrange a pre-group meeting to discuss whether this group matches our needs!

  • Does 100 days to graduation have you feeling anxious about your future plans?

Students will have the opportunity to practice a variety of mindfulness-based meditations, including mindful eating, breathing and movement.

No prior experience or knowledge is necessary, only a willingness to participate. Approximate start date will be the first week of February and each group meeting will last one hour.
