“It’s meant to normalize the challenges that students face on campus,” said Assistant Director of Student Success, Emily Halstead, “we know every student encounters challenges in college.”

Real Talk started as a conversation between the Office of Student Success and the Office for Research that Reaches Out. The two offices came together after listening to the voices of students in a focus group who were polled about what they would like to see on campus.
