Drop-In Spaces

What is a drop-in space?

A drop-in space is a casual, no-commitment-required way to engage in a variety of experiences that allow you to find connection and support. Drop-in spaces are offered jointly by Prevention Services and the Counseling Center

What do you mean by drop-in?

This means that the content from one week does not necessarily build on another. This allows you to try out different spaces and not worry about missing something if you have a conflict. For some spaces, you can also drop into the space during the allotted time. Most drop-in spaces do not require registration but will note if they do.

For virtual drop-in spaces, cameras are not required but encouraged for creating community!
