Ian’s Re-Authoring Club

Sometimes our minds become overrun by thoughts and feelings related to anxiety. Each person's response is unique to them, but finding the commonalities in our experiences, and being open with each other builds resilience. Would you like to learn how to better deal with the feeling of anxiety through a group process? Email Ian if interested in joining a weekly support group of AR students working to support each other in combating anxiety and stress. Meets Wednesdays during Tier in the SSC conference room.


CR Campus Parking Passes

CR Parking Permits can be purchased online at You will need to login using your CR email address and password and input credit card information.
