10:15–11 a.m. Health and Wellness at LC: Cultivating the Relational Web
Relationships play a vital role in the health, mental health, creativity, and academic progress of each student in the Loomis Chaffee community. When students attend Loomis Chaffee for the first time, they are removed from the four major pillars of emotional stability: family, friends, school, and culture. During this transitional period of instability, students are at risk for emotional dysregulation. Loomis Chaffee supports students as they transition onto campus by promoting a strong relational web that will be protective and productive for students during their time on the island and beyond. Join us to hear how we make this happen! 
11 a.m.–12 p.m. Alvord Center for Global and Environmental Studies Harvest Expo
Come celebrate fall and Loomis Chaffee’s exciting global and environmental place-based programming with the Alvord Center and Environmental Proctors! Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about our initiatives, see the LC bees in action, and sample some great LC-produced treats!
