NACOGDOCHES, Texas — The Stephen F. Austin State University Office of Multicultural Affairs will present “Student Guide to Surviving Your PWI,” the second installment in its Brave Space Series of the spring semester, at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 3.

The Brave Space Series provides a forum for open and honest discussion concerning difficult topics. This workshop will educate attendees about the advantages of utilizing on-campus resources and opportunities available to students looking to have a presence on campus and add more value to their college experience at SFA, a predominantly white institution or PWI.

“Being a student leader, I’ve heard so many stories from my peers wishing that things were different for them here or wondering if attending another university would have been more fitting," said Lauren Roach, OMA student ambassador. "At one point, a few of those stories were my own.

“As I close out my time as an undergraduate student, I would like to inform students of how I’ve made a home out of SFA."

The workshop will be held in the Baker Pattillo Student Center Multimedia Room. In-person attendance is limited, so participants also can join via Zoom.
