Winter Blues, also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, is something many students suffer from. The weather grows colder, the sun goes down earlier in the cloudy sky, you don't feel like doing any outside activities, and waking up in the morning to go to class seems like a momentous task. But don't worry! This workshop will teach you everything you need to know about Winter Blues and how to beat them.
