For your Mental Fun


Last Week's answers: Your Name; They start on opposite sides of the river. This week, we have another set of riddles to solve.

Congrats to the two students who won prizes last week!

It's been around for millions of years, but it's no more than a month old. What is it?

I fly, yet I have no wings. I cry, yet I have no eyes. Darkness follows me; lower light I never see.

 

 

What's Happening in SLiCE


Turkey Drive

60% of those who are at risk of hunger in our country are children and seniors. You can help change that! For the Thanksgiving Season, SLiCE is holding a Turkey Drive to raise funds to supply Thanksgiving Dinner to families who would be going without this November. If you have a chance, stop by the SLiCE office and donate cash or check by November 18th. Every donation makes a difference.

Homeless Gear-A-Thon

The Homeless Gear-A-Thon is a Gear Drive held by SLiCE in partnership with Homeless Awareness Team and benefiting Homeless Gear (a local non- profit).

We will be collecting gear such as backpacks, sleeping bags, flashlights, water bottles, towels, socks, etc. Items that aren't commonly associated with homeless drives, but much needed by the homeless community. We will be collecting campus wide from November 7th - December 7th.
 

Opportunities Around Campus


2012 Martin Luther King Jr. March Leaders

The planning committee for the 2012 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration is seeking nominations for community activists, leaders and volunteers to serves as March Leaders. The theme for the 2012 Celebration is "Fulfilling the Dream: One Step at a Time" and we hope to have March Leaders who are active change agents in Northern Colorado. We are looking for people who are working to achieve equality and justice for all through their efforts. They can be leaders in a formal or informal setting.

If you know of such people, please send their name and a short description of why you think they should be a March Leader (including a description the education work to which the individual is committed) to Meagan Goulian at
meagan.goulian@colostate.edu by Tuesday, November 22 by noon.

SAGE Peer Educator Course

WHEN: Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3:30 - 4:45

WHAT: SAGE is a 3 credit peer educator training course offered by the Women and Gender Advocacy Center (WGCA) through women's studies. Students spend the first 3/4 of the semester learning about topics like sexual assault, masculinity, domestic violence and pornography... and then spend the last 1/4 of the semester learning facilitation/action skills. The course is capped at 20 students and while I wouldn't necessarily say it is extremely academically rigorous, students do express that the class can be emotionally intense. The assignments are very reflective in nature so students are asked to spend quite a bit of time examining their own past and current experiences and relationships. In the end, i often hear that SAGE is one of the most "powerful" classes students can take at CSU.

HOW: If you would like to be considered for the class please send an email to
monicahcollins@yahoo.com with your csu ID, your year and why you are interested in taking the class. Also, please contact Monica with any questions or would like more info about the class.

Hiring for the Key Communities (2012-2013)

The Key Communities are currently searching for candidates for the position of Key Mentor, Key Plus Program Coordinator, and Key Communities Student Coordinator for the 2012-2013 academic year. The Key Communities are Living Learning Communities housed within the Center for Advising & Student Achievement.

For more information on the Key communities, position descriptions, as well as to apply, visit their
website.

Roundup River Ranch Summer 2012 Staff and Volunteer Opportunities

Many of the campers measure their time in the hospital in months, not days or weeks; they miss school and social functions, and are often unable to participate in sports or clubs.  Their daily interactions are frequently dominated by adults – they have very little interaction with peers.  Furthermore, when out of the hospital, they are rarely afforded the opportunity to let loose and experience the joys of being a kid.  After all, many are facing very adult challenges.  At camp, however, these kids are encouraged to RAISE A LITTLE HELL - to challenge themselves, try new things, make new friends, and rediscover a childhood.  This program is designed specifically to be all-inclusive, age-appropriate, and, above all, FUN. For those interested in taking part in a summer that gives back a much needed dose of childhood, please apply. 

For any questions you may have regarding the opportunities at Roundup River Ranch, please contact Evan Brothers by phone at 970.524.5719 or by email at
evan@roundupriverranch.org.  Applications and more information may be found at www.roundupriverranch.org.
