Programming and Community Activities

The Native American Academic Student Success Center offers a variety of monthly and weekly programs designed to build a sense of community, promote mental and social wellness, and allow students to build meaningful connections with one another. 

All programming for the Native Nest is occurring virtually for the Winter 2021 Quarter. Email us if you are interested in attending or participating in any of our programs. Be sure to check Facebook and Instagram, or subscribe to our weekly newsletter for the latest information on upcoming NAASSC events and activities. 

Dates, times, and virtual meeting information for Winter 2021 events can be be found in Winter Quarter 2021 Programming. 

Coffee Talks 

Led by NAASSC student staff, join us for coffee and topical, open discussions.

Community Check-In

NAASSC hosts its own Minecraft Java server with an in-game replica of the Native Nest. Anyone with this version of the game is welcome to join and help build our virtual community. 

Tribal Presentations

Every month the Native Nest will host a Tribal Presentation in which a guest presenter will speak to their culture and experiences as a Native American.

Wellness Wednesday

Every other Wednesday, NAASSC hosts Wellness Check-Ins in which students can practice mental wellness through guided group discussion led by our in-house CAN counselor, Tracy Thomas, LMFT.
