Podcast Cover


Holiday themed podcast, but with a twist. Morgan, Madilyn, and Noah have discussions about their experiences with homesickness during the first few years of college, and how that might trigger students to drop out of college after their first year. Also, friendsgiving is a popular thing for college students, but what is it and how do you put one on? BD has an article for you! They also share resources for students who are homeless, potentially homeless, or going hungry.
