The Latina Students' Support Group goal is to support participants to successfully adjust to college life and effectively use their college experience to obtain their educational and career goals. Getting together as Latina women is an ideal way for group members to help one another to address the unique challenges faced while completing a higher education. Group discussion will explore family issues/pressure, peer pressure, interpersonal relationships, social vs. academic life, social stigma and stereotypes. The group will be a safe place to bring your concerns in a supportive and caring environment.
