UThrive: How to Succeed in College and Beyond - a special event with author Daniel Lerner
Talk: 6-7 p.m., followed by 30-minute Q-and-A. Featuring highlights from Daniel Lerner's popular NYU class "The Science of Happiness" (the largest non-101 at the university), this talk will help students make the best of these crucial four years, both inside and outside of the classroom. Fast-paced, engaging, interactive, and immediately applicable, Lerner shares with audiences how to cultivate greater optimism, resilience, willpower, and better relationships. He also reveals the science behind why positive thinking can lead to better grades, a more satisfying social experience, better levels of performance on the stage, field, and in the classroom, and even higher post-grad salaries.
