TLC Groups

TLC Group Starting February 28th, 2019!   341 Fraser Hall 5-7 pm for 8 weeks.  


Sessions are 2 hours long and run for 8 consecutive weeks.  The cost is $30 for the entire package of 8 sessions. You do not need a parking pass at that time of night.  If you come early and get stopped at a booth just tell them where you are headed and for what and if you do arrive before 5pm ask the office staff for a parking portal pass so you don't get a ticket. Please make inquiries if you must arrive at 5:15 (coming from work) and we should be able to assist you.  The best route to this meeting is to come up 14th St. from the East and turn South onto Jayhawk Blvd and then immediately South again on Lilac Lane to park behind Fraser Hall.
