Happy November CSU! It is that time of the year to be thankful for what we have as well as a chance to give to others who may be in need. If you have the means to, please help out some great causes that are looking for extra help. SLiCE is finishing up our Cans Around the Oval Push with a Turkey Drive, collecting monetary donation for the holiday meals ahead. In addition, SLiCE along side the Homeless Awareness team is sponsoring a Homeless Gear-A-Thon. Check out the details below.

For your Mental Fun

Last Week's answers: It was not raining; His birthday was December 31st and "Today" was January 1st. This week, we have another set of riddles to solve.

Congrats to the two students who won prizes last week!

Solve the riddles below. The first three students to email me (  with the correct answers will win a FREE SLiCE reusable water bottle.

What belongs to you but others use it more than you do?

Two boys wish to cross a river. The only way to get to the other side is by boat, but that boat can only take one boy at a time. The boat cannot return on its own, there are no ropes or similar tricks, yet both boys manage to cross using the boat. How?


What's Happening in SLiCE

Turkey Drive

60% of those who are at risk of hunger in our contry are children and senious. 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.
