In this age-appropriate course, required of all new lowers, students will discuss health issues such as sleep, time management, living and learning in a diverse community, mindfulness, positive psychology and stress management, media literacy, social practices in a digital landscape, and integrating into their new class. All topics will be addressed in the context of adjusting to a campus community, accessing resources and understanding school rules. We aim to enable students to build self-efficacy and prepare for challenging health and lifestyle choices through the development of effective communication and decision-making skills. The pass/no pass grading system encourages student participation, honesty and sharing in a supportive and more relaxed environment.
