Real Talk

College is an exciting time that brings big opportunities and adventures, but also big questions and decisions. What should I do with my life? How do I talk to my family about this? What will I major in? How do I make friends? What if I don’t pass this course? How do I ask for help? Why does everyone else seem to have it all figured out? Am I the only one?

Real Talk is a monthly series featuring speakers you know, stories from their lives, and real talk about the ups and downs of navigating college. Get to know the people behind the podiums and the faces you see on campus, and learn that you are not alone in the challenges you face.

Real Talk is about shining light on the challenges we face and sharing our hard-won lessons with each other so that we can grow together, knowing that none of us are alone.
