Freshman Half Retreat

to Jan 21

Freshman Half Retreat

Are you interested in learning the core skills that you need to succeed in college, and in life? Are you interested in learning “the science of making life better” – the factors that are correlated with happiness and a thriving life? When these tools and skills of positive psychology were first introduced at Harvard University, it quickly became the most popular course at Harvard University with 900 students taking the class on “how to be happy.”

Here at CMC, since we can only offer small classes, so we are running this as an experiential weekend program – not a class for credit. You will be learning and practicing the CORE essential skills for greater success.
