The College of Graduate Studies would like to invite you to attend our weekly graduate student support group called, “Balance: You’re more than a Degree”. It is led by a counselor from the Counseling Center here at Georgia Southern University, Randy LaMons.

The group is a time for graduate students to prioritize mental health and self-care, share how they are doing, and connect with other graduate students. This is a safe space to share struggles, frustrations, joys, and encouragement. If you are interested in a space where you can freely share about your life as a graduate student without judgment and gain support from your peers this is the place for you!

If you are interested, please join us for our weekly sessions on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00 pm at the Henderson Library Room on First Floor, Room 1300 for the Spring 2024 semester. Although we would appreciate an RSVP to get an idea of the numbers and attendance, it is not a requirement and you are welcome anytime while we are in session!
