Meeting / Retention & First Year Experience

This is a weekly drop-in group for students who find it unexpectedly challenging to adjust to their new life at USU. Homesickness is common and it can be tough to feel like you have made meaningful connections at USU. Balancing school, friends, and work can be hard. Making new friends in a new environment may be more difficult than you anticipated. It may not feel like you fit into the Aggie Family. These struggles are very common. In this group, you will meet other students who are facing similar challenges. It will be a confidential and judgment-free place to provide mutual support, exchange ideas, and connect with each other. Bring your own lunch to the meeting so we can eat while we talk.
