Courage 2 Care (C2C):  Most college students make safe responsible decisions in their life and in their social situations.  However, we all observe and hear about those students who don't.  This program addresses the things students are most concerned about and  helps bridge the gap between knowing there is a problem, understanding the problem and having the courage to address the problem.  Carolyn's talk emphasizes the power of positive peer influence.  Students will learn how to recognize the warning signs of out-of-control drinking and ways to help friends who may be developing unhealthy drinking habits.  This is a powerful program that takes a realistic look at collegiate drinking.
Here's to Sister Carolyn, so Drink Chug-a-lug...:  Drawing on her personal experience as a sorority member, Carolyn shares first-hand how important it is for members to look out for each other.  Fraternal groups by their very nature lend themselves to more protective factors for members and ways to intervene. Sisters and Brothers have a shared value system and a fraternal bond which assist them in reaching out.  Carolyn knows first-hand how important it is to be connected and how important it is to be positive role models for new members.      
Play Hard, Party Hard:  Athletes, coaches and administrators will have a winning season with this program.  A former student- athlete herself, Carolyn's Play Hard, Party Hard program is tailor-made for athletic populations. Carolyn addresses how the athletic environment of competitiveness can lead to extracurricular competitiveness and alcohol abuse related issues.
LIFE: Be In It:  Love, Integrity, Forgiveness and Enthusuiasm.  These are the four components of LIFE that Carolyn challenges the audience to address.  Perfect as a keynote address for leadership groups, new student orientations or convocations, this inspiring and entertaining program looks at the need for personal value systems and personal life philosophies.
Healthy is a Healthy Does:  Carolyn takes a holistic approach to living a well-rounded and balanced life.  This hands-on program focuses on the need to take care of ourselves.  Utilizing exercises and interaction, participants will learn how to live more fully by effectively using leisure time, stress management techniques, spiritual exploration and other wellness concepts.
Leadership: You Make the Call:  What does it take to be a great leader?  Carolyn knows and in this program she addresses the key traits that all great leaders need to possess.  Presented in a unique fashion, the fifteen key traits are compared to skills of a referee.  Ideal for student leadership groups, athletic teams, and student conferences.
