The pandemic has brought many changes to the current application season.  Not only are these changes beyond our control, but the uncertainty of how they will impact our carefully made plans for applying to grad or professional school and ultimately reaching our career goals can be stressful.  As we ponder how events will unfold, we may need to consider making changes to our plans and goals.  Making decisions about your next steps and how to move forward may seem daunting.  You are not alone. Join us and connect with others going through a similar experience.   

Please join us for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Erin Gates.  The discussion group provides a welcoming and confidential space to explore positive and proactive methods to build resilience and self-care skills.  Even if you can't join us for the entire hour, we encourage you to still attend.
