Description: This workshop is designed to help students explore what brings meaning to their lives and how happiness is a by-product of engaging in meaning-making. Through group discussions and activities, participants will brainstorm
things in their lives that feel most meaningful and how to engage with these during significant transitions (e.g., graduation) to gain a sense of purpose, grounded-ness, and direction.
