SkillBuilder! helps students get the most out of summer

The Center for Student Enrichment is offering its Live Well, Wildcats SkillBuilder! workshop for the first time this semester.

House promotion assistant Stephanie Stockel is putting on the workshop, which aims at gearing students with useful leadership development skills. It will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 18 in the Back Room of the University Center.

“The main goal is to have students set goals and figure out how to make them happen,” Stockel said. “We promote happier and healthier summers.”

“The SkillBuilder! workshop series helps by giving individuals a chance to share knowledge and resources with others,” Stockel said. “These resources give individuals a chance to become better leaders.”
