The Freshman 16 Workshop
Crush your first college semester.
About The Workshop
Every student entering into college needs this workshop, because a college acceptance letter does not guarantee college readiness. No standardized test or high school class prepares students for a 16-week college semester.

Dr. Joel brings over 15 years of experience working with college students, including 12 years serving as Staff Psychologist, Coordinator of Alcohol & Other Drug Services, Sport Psychology Consultant, and Associate Director of Counseling Services on 3 campuses. Dr. Joel has counseled, advised, and mentored thousands of college students.
