Encouraging freshman college students to develop healthy lifestyle habits.
College life can be pretty extreme. From intense all-nighter study sessions, and maybe a demanding part-time job, to intense fun with endless events and activities to choose from, there’s a lot to keep up with as a college student. We believe that maintaining a balanced life and positively handling stress are key during these crucial years of self-exploration and growth in order to lead a successful life and career.
That’s why we created the Lynne Goldberg Balance for Success Scholarship. We want to inspire new college students to reflect on their habits and encourage them to develop a healthy lifestyle. This scholarship is awarded annually to one student, the writer of the best essay.
