Re-Imagining Boe House Seminar Series

This series of virtual seminars, led by Boe House therapists, covers a range of topics relevant to St. Olaf students during the 2020-2021 spring semester. They are designed to provide students with useful information about psychological topics that students can apply to their own situations.   Seminars run on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:15-5:15 pm. Monday seminars feature a repeating two-part series on managing anxiety. Thursday seminars cover a variety of topics pertinent to mental health, student life and development, self-care, relationships, and navigating life during a pandemic.

The group will take place Thursdays from 11 am – 12 pm starting Thursday, March 18th.  All self-identified students of color are welcome! This is a SAFE space for you to be heard, and get support around issues of race, social justice, and any topics that are relevant to your life while trying to navigate a predominately white institution and our uncertain time. Students could use this space to process feelings about the Chauvin trial and its impact on them. This is an open group – you are welcome to join as often or as little as you want. Please show up 5 min to the start time.
