Your Personal Identity

You are uniquely you, but that doesn’t mean you’re alone. Community Matters. Find yours here. These Connections celebrate personal identities and communities.

  • What the Transfer?

    What the Transfer? is a connection for EOP Transfer students. We will meet bi-weekly to explore topics related to transitioning from the semester to the quarter system. The 2 hours connection offers 1 hour of mentorship facilitated by EOP Retention Specialist, Christina L. Jackson and 1 hour to explore the campus with other first-year Transfer students. Weekly themes will voted on during the first connection so that the connection curriculum is developed specifically for the students enrolled.

We will also discuss the value of diversity in higher education and in the workplace. This will be an active and engaging space including lectures, group discussions, and activities.

  • Introverts Unite (Quietly)!

    Are you the one who hates raising your hand in class, even when you know the answer? Do you prefer a few deep friendships over hanging with anyone and everyone? Does your ideal Friday night involve the words “Netflix” and “jammies”? Maybe you’ve always been encouraged to “put yourself out there,” or “stop being so shy.” If this sounds like you, then join your fellow introverts to learn about what it really means to be a “quiet one” in a world that chatters 24/7. You’ll learn about your brain’s physiology, the personality characteristics common to introverts, and how to hack your brain during those times when you need to act like an extrovert. Then, we’ll dive into strategies for getting the most out of your college experience while staying true to who you are.

    This Connection is open to all first-year undergraduate students (freshman, transfer, and international).

    • Time and Location: Fridays (12:10-1:00PM); South Hall (room TBD)
