Join the Associated Students of Ventura College and the Ventura College Political Science Club Thursday, November 5th from 12-1 via Zoom for a Reflection on the Election Student Forum. This is a forum to help students dealing with anxiety, nervousness, and depression surrounding the Election.

The VC Student Health Center Nurse Coordinator, Mary Jones and VC Mental Health Counselor, Andrew Nelson will be addressing concerns related to anxiety, nervousness, and depression during the event. VC Political Science Faculty Kenyon Callahan and Corinna McKoy will facilitate a dialogue around the presidential elections.
