The semester is winding down, and for many of you that means:
All the Feels
If you need to see me, I’m holding OPEN OFFICE HOURS today and Thursday.
TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 2016 7:30 am – 1:30 pm
(yup, I’m already here!)
THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2016 7:30 am – 1:30 pm
If you need to see me at another time, you will need to schedule private office hours. These are possible, but limited.
Whether you visit during drop-in hours or by-appointment, please come prepared with specific questions or concerns. Help me help you.
Don’t want to see me but anxious about grades? Please be patient as I chip away at this mountain of papers! You will be notified when all grades are in Carmen and ready for the Registrar’s office. If you have anything lower than an “A” I will give you an opportunity to verify your grades before the push to the main system.
Now – On a very serious note: If your stress levels have exceeded your coping strategies, please seek some help. There are lots of resources in the community. There are folks on campus that can talk with you as well. They’ll help you develop strategies to cope with finals as well as other issues. The Younkin Success Center offers excellent Wellness Services that cover everything from tutoring/studying assistance to counseling. Heck, if you are a graduating Senior, you can even go get help with your resume or career search!
If you need help… make sure to ask!
If you’ve ever wanted to see them (or to see them again… since they are so different each time), check out the local Vagina Monologues this Friday or Sunday! You’ll probably recognize some faces (Tara for one!). Sadly, not mine. Nope… I can’t make it 😦
There is a cost (ten dollars at the door) or you can pre-purchase tickets online to be sure you get a spot. As I type this, there are still some TABLES available too in case you want to take a group and get comfortable!
Today, at our last class meeting of the semester (for HDFS 2367 Mon/Wed) a student shared a bumper sticker with me. Here it is!
She said it seemed like a very good fit with the class we’ve shared and I agree. That’s why I am sharing the information with you now after checking out the website first, of course. I love it when students make connections with course material and share information (like this) with me.
THIS IS PUBLIC HEALTH
(from their website):
The This is Public Health (TIPH) campaign was created by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) to brand public health and raise awareness of how public health affects individuals, families, communities, and populations. The simple statement – This is Public Health – has proven to be a powerful tool in raising awareness about and support for public health efforts. Join this global effort to promote public health awareness.
This is Public Health promotes public health awareness through social media, which allows users to interact with the campaign via Facebook or Instagram. Take photos of public health efforts, issues, or events and share your photos on social media by using #thisispublichealth. Stay up to date with photo contests, monthly challenges, and campaign activities by following us on social media.
Interested in getting involved? The resource page is where you’ll find materials to help you build your campaign. Traditionally, the campaign utilizes stickers with the slogan This is Public Health placed in strategic locations around communities to build awareness of the many ways in which public health impacts our well being. Other resources include campaign downloads, messaging, and videos.
