College is a period of radical independence, as students transition from their teens into adulthood. Taking on new responsibilities and an unfamiliar schedule (often in an unfamiliar city) can be overwhelming if you aren’t prepared or guided.
Lisa Bok, 2012 IIN graduate from Hamden, Connecticut, learned firsthand about the challenges that college students face on a daily basis. Her experience and her passion for education led to the development of a holistic health seminar for incoming college freshman – in short, the tips she wishes she had known at their age!
What were you doing prior to enrolling at Integrative Nutrition?
Prior to IIN, I was teaching elementary students at an inner city school. I was also offering health advice to my friends and family. From helping friends with day-to-day dietary suggestions, to supporting my family through major health transitions, I realized my true calling was to educate people.
