Representatives from PolyColumbus will be visiting my HDFS 5440 classroom on The Ohio State University Main Campus (Campbell Hall, Room 167) on April 9, 2013  from 12:45-2:00 pm.

This is an extra credit opportunity for students enrolled in my other classes this semester who are not also currently enrolled in my 5440 this semester. If you are in another instructor’s 5440 or you’ve taken it with me previously… YES, you may come.

If you are not currently enrolled in my HDFS 5440 class and you’d like to attend, Be prepared to sit on the floor or to stand! It’s a full house.

The PolyColumbus group provides polyamorous, poly-curious, and poly-friendly individuals with an online forum for an exchange of ideas, friendship, support and community among area polyamorists. Discussions focus on polyamory and poly-related topics. PolyColumbus is not a swingers group, and the group is intended for adults 18 and over. Once a month, the group has a meeting in Columbus for those wishing to meet in real-time and in-person.

*If you – or someone you know – is interested in this group, more information is available at their yahoo group page (an age-restricted site)

*For additional information, about purposeful non-monogamy,  I recommend a visit to Looking Through.Us

Star House Drive (Deadline March 8th)

An open letter to my students,
This is an opportunity for you to make a difference in the life of someone who has not been as fortunate as you. Some of you have dealt with homelessness in your lifetime, but most have not. I received the following email and wanted to be certain that all of you received it. This isn’t about extra credit or even about our classes, this is about a real need in your community. Please consider bringing in something (even just a tube of toothpaste or some hair care products if that’s all you can pick up) . See below for dropoff location in Campbell Hall. If you are interested in Star House, visit their site and/or view the short video at the end of this post.
Dear Students,
As you may know, our very own Natasha Slesnick is the Director of the Star House, which provides a safe place for homeless youth ages 14-24. Here, youth are provided with basic needs and social resources such as education, employment, healthcase, and housing services in the local community. More importantly, the Star House provides these youth with hope, care, and support during their time of need.
As part of an effort to forge an ongoing service commitment to the Star House, the GSO would like to invite you to bring the items listed below to 135 Campbell Hall THIS WEEK. We will wrap up the donation drive on Friday, March 8th and will deliver the items shortly thereafter.
Donation Ideas:
student clothing,food,bus passes,socks,underwear,toiletries,coats,back packs,sleeping bags, movie tickets ,MP3 players, etc
