8:45 – 10:00 am A Whole New World: Culture, Comfort, and Communication in College (Teams 49 – 74) Fisher (15), 135

Going to college provides you with endless opportunities, including the chance to meet new people and make new friends. It can be difficult to open up to complete strangers, but the friends you make in college often last a lifetime and the experiences you share can be some of your most memorable. One of the wonderful things about college campuses is that they bring together people from varying backgrounds, which allows you to learn about others and expand your interests while also finding common ground with your fellow students. As exciting and rewarding as it can be to develop new relationships, sometimes tension and misunderstandings result from differences in background, expectations, and experiences. To help prepare you for the college transition, the staff of the Center for Diversity and Inclusion will introduce the concept of diversity in a new way, helping you to think about diversity in terms of both your own identity as well as the identity of others. This session is intended to make you feel more comfortable engaging with others and navigating moments of conflict that may occur during the getting-to-know-you phase.

9:00 – 10:00 am Music, Arts, and Theater (Teams 1 – 48) Rozsa (10), Theater
