Welcome to Unlocking College Life!


Real talk about all things college — the good, the bad, the messy, the complicated, all of it. And you get to participate! Our show incorporates what you have to say — your questions and your feedback.


We go beyond our experiences working in higher education and mental health with hundreds of students like you. We reflect on current and ever-present issues of college students, with you and our guests. We‘ll encourage you to try new things in order to connect differently with yourself and others. And we hope to help you shift your perspectives on the college experience, authoring your own path. Let‘s dive in.
