A word from our Alumni
Families & Health Block U has really opened my eyes to all the resources that are available to us. As a freshman, it is overwhelming to know that there are so many opportunities and resources available but not know how and when to use them. Through Block U, I have been able to involve myself in the community using these tools, such as Student Success Advocates and the Center for Student Wellness. These resources have helped me participate in my classes better and communicate with teachers and peers. I am grateful to Block U for presenting me with these really helpful tools that have aided me in bettering myself.
