Peer-Led Support Groups

Transfer and Green Tea Chat
  • Time: 1 - 2pm
  • Day: Thursdays
  • Contact: Amanda Nolan anolan@scu.edu
  • Registration for in person: bit.ly/greentransfer
  • Location has been Benson Parlor A, but I don't know if we can have that room each time.
  • Description: Transfer students and LEAD scholars come from various cultures, backgrounds, and other colleges. To arrive in a new place (yet, again) can be challenging and might make the student feel uncomfortable and out of place. The fingerprint logo inspires the students to have the confidence to make their unique mark on an unfamiliar campus, and they are gold! A green tree reminds the students that the resources available to them on campus are to help them grow into the people they want to be. Just as a tree has many branches that extend outward, this color and logo also reminds the students that they have access to different kinds of support; if one does not work out, we can try another. 
Lavender Tea Chat
  • Time: 3 - 4pm
  • Day: Tuesdays
  • Contact: Amanda Nolan anolan@scu.edu
  • Location has been Benson Parlor A, but I don't know if we can have that room each time.
  • Registration for in person: bit.ly/compassiontea
  • Description: Counseling Psychology students are taught how to best serve others. But they may often forget how to take care of themselves. The lavender plant and color reminds students to be gentle with themselves and express the same amount of compassion that they would extend to a client in need. We cannot help others if we don't help ourselves.
Neurodivergent Tea Chat
  • Time: TBD
  • Day: TBD
  • Contact: Amanda Nolan anolan@scu.edu
  • Location has been Benson Parlor A, but I don't know if we can have that room each time.
  • Interest Form: bit.ly/NDInterestForm
  • Description: Neurodiverse students may feel “different”, “othered”, and discriminated against. This tea chat gives students the opportunity to receive and extend kindness. Students have the opportunity to learn from each other and offer a different perspective on how they learn, function, and how they should be treated. The logo and color reminds students that no one is the same and that’s what unifies us as human beings.

King's Talk

  • A support group specifically for Black Men on campus (athletes and non-athletes). A vulnerable space to share feelings and experiences of being a Black Male in a predominantly White Institute."  Contact Amanda Nolan at anolan@scu.edu for more information.
