Pump Down the Volume, Wellness Center • 7 pm
This communication skills program will help students learn strategies for addressing problems and communicating needs and requests in order to minimize conflicts and enhance quality of life. One of the major sources of conflict for students living in the residence halls involves noise. Students often ignore the problem until their tempers explode, or they go to the RA to complain rather than addressing the issue on their own. This is an interactive session presented by the Wellness Center; participants will role-play and discuss problem situations, and learn effective communication skills that can be used with irritating neighbors, or with anyone.
