Six ways to beat the winter blues - tips to share with your student

This time of year, many students start dragging a bit. They might be experiencing the "winter blues" or, more seriously, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Here are great tips for parents to share with their students about staying healthy and happy all winter long.
Parent & family involvement opportunities
February 24 & 25  

Register today to walk a mile in your student's shoes and see what's it's like to be an Anteater! Grab a seat in the front of the class and listen to an inspiring lecture, chat with the Dean over a cup of coffee, and hear directly from UCI's Provost, Enrique Lavernia. Then come "Party in the Park" with the larger UCI community for Homecoming 2017!

Saturday, May 6, 2017

It's time for the next Parent & Family Coffee Socials! Come join fellow Anteater parents and family members in your local neighborhood for a casual gathering to connect with one another and receive important UCI updates and resources.

Coffee Socials will be held at a local coffee shop or a private residence in various regions. We are currently recruiting hosts! If you are interested in hosting an event, please email parentprograms@uci.edu. Registration will open in late March.
