Classy Colleagues!
I hope everyone is having an awesome summer! We've got a ton of enthralling events in the coming weeks! Most notably, I gotta give a shout-out to the GPSC Campout Committee, which is hosting a T-shirt design competition. For more information about Campout 2012, click the title above! The Nasher is continuing its standard Summer Days/Nasher Nights festivities; the American Dance Festival is putting on several invigorating performances; and the Music in the Gardens series is down to its final two performances! I hope something peaks your interest!
Thanks for ROCKING!!!

2. Worrying Well Summer Class
Dates: Mondays and Thursdays - July 16 and 19
Time: 3-4:15PM
Location: Room 217 Page Building
Contact: Gary Glass
Cost: FREE!
We all worry from time to time. Worrying reflects that there are things in life that we care about, and the emotion of worry reminds us to pay attention to those things and take care of them. However, when worry becomes pervasive, taking more of our time and energy, it gets in the way of us living our lives fully---and we don't even enjoy the things in our life we actually care about in the first place. Not only can this lead to a number of psychological problems, it keeps us hooked onto the worry while life passes by.

This 4 Session workshop helps you examine the nature of your worry and how to recognize when you get caught up in it. Worry tends to hold you hostage, and this workshop will help you show up for your life more fully! Learn to adjust your perspective and your actions to "un-hook" from disruptive stress.

Time: 12:15-1:30PM
