Today’s college students are often portrayed in the media as fragile, overly sensitive young adults coddled by parents and the academy. We find a very different generation of college students, one that is strong, creative, adaptable and resilient. Vice President for Student Life Maria Blandizzi will lead a conversation with students and recent alumni Christian Cardona, Class of ’19 B.S., ’21 M.A., Rene Jesse (RJ) Bagus, Music Industry Studies, Class of ’22, Tierra Smithson, Political Science, Class of ’22. 

At the conclusion of the conversation, we will offer a 15-minute overview of the social media spaces our students live in. Following the large group conversation, brief small group sessions will be offered to dive into Instagram, TikTok, and/or Reddit. Bring your mobile device and have the apps on your phone. 

Lunch will be provided following the session.
