An IPO Counselor will be in attendance to give you tips on how to get started.  The best part is,  you will hear students  talk about their experiences while studying abroad.

let's talkWhen something’s bothering you, talking about it is often the first step toward a solution. Now, there’s an informal, convenient, confidential way to get insight and information – “Let’s Talk.”

The new program offers free, friendly drop-in sessions with counselor consultants from the Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH), at locations around campus. “Let’s Talk” isn’t formal counseling or mental health treatment. It’s a chance to briefly share what’s on your mind, find support, and get recommendations. No topic’s off-limits!

Facilitator:  Stacey Lopez for most Monday Let's Talk at CMASS..  Check meeting schedule here...
