This club was formed out of a need to de-stress college students and improve their overall quality of life. This will be a space where we can focus on positivity. We’ll explore topics such as spirituality, meditation, art, saving the environment, groovy/awesome music, expanding our consciousness, nature, methods in spreading good vibes, and whatever else members are passionate about.
