Shine University Workshop for High School Seniors 

Shine University is a workshop series specifically for high school seniors preparing to head off to college in the Fall. This half-day workshop (12:30 to 4:30 pm) will include sessions that lay the groundwork for everything students need to take with them to college that they won’t find included in a college’s packing guidelines. Included in our SHINE-U packing list are: 1) The most important tool in a student’s tool belt – their SHINE; 2) The ins and outs of using a calendar and prioritizing the many tasks of a college student; and 3)Advice from college campus insiders on what to expect in their first hundred days of university life.

A special pre-conference workshop (10:30 to noon) is also available for students to take a deep dive into their top 5 strengths using the StrengthsFinder instrument. This pre-conference session will allow students to gain insight into their specific combination of strengths and learn strategies for using these strengths when they make their way to campus in the Fall. Lunch with be provided in between the end of the pre-conference workshop and the beginning of the afternoon conference sessions for those attending both.
