BE REAL
Behind happy faces: take charge of your mental health
Straub Hall Room 156
Mental health is complex. Ross Szabo tries to make it easier in his talk "Behind Happy Faces: Taking Charge of Your Mental Health." The fact of the matter is, mental disorders and mental health issues are the largest problems facing college campuses today. It doesn’t have to be that way. In this talk, Ross empowers students to seek help for mental health issues. Most of these problems are treatable, but are too often over looked. Ross uses tasteful comedy to help students understand common mental health conditions and how societal stereotypes can lead to increased loneliness, isolation, and suicide.

Why diversity is everyone's business
Straub Hall Room 156
We all know diversity - we hear the term so much it sometimes becomes numb to us. In this lecture, Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington shows us how we can all benefit from diversity. Navigating the topic is a skill often looked over, but in reality it is an important asset to our academic, professional and personal lives. Being open is more than accepting diversity; it’s integrating diversity into your daily life.
