    Common Ground

    Dec. 1 | 8-9pm | Warren Hall 403

    What do we have in common? More than we think!

    Common Ground is a group program for JMU students who want to explore, evaluate, or have questions about the role of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs in their life. 

    It is a free, confidential, non-judgmental opportunity to connect with and engage in conversations with other students who have similar understanding and experiences with substances.

    Common Ground meets Mondays in Warren Hall Room 403 from 8-9pm. Students can join at any point in the semester, and there is no minimum commitment for attendance.

    Please contact the group facilitator Heidi Jordan in the University Health Center with any questions.
