All students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome to join us during the child-friendly open house.

Between 10 am – 2 pm feel free to drop-in anytime to learn about what CEW+ has to offer you while enjoying refreshments and viewing completed community art embedded throughout our warm and welcoming space. Be the first to see our most recently completed art project, a painted wall mural that extends down our counseling wing.

Open House Schedule:

  • 10:00 am – 2:00 pm: Drop-in anytime
  • 10:30 am – 11:30 am: Mindfulness Meditation Workshop – A Cognitive Skill to Enhance Daily Living
    Being present in the moment is a skill that can be learned when practiced on a regular basis. Evidence-based mindful meditation has been shown to reduce implicit age and race bias, reduce the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and pain, improve cognitive functioning, and assist in ending ruminating thought patterns. This workshop will provide an overview of the basics of this powerful tool, introduce ways to incorporate both formal and informal mindful meditation practices into daily life, and a guided mindful meditation experience. In addition, every Wednesday from 12:15 – 12:45 pm, CEW+ holds guided mindful meditation sessions providing a weekly opportunity to practice in a supportive space.
  • 12:00 – 1:00 pm: Lunch
