There is an open mic night next Thursday, March 1, from (roughly) 6:00-8:00 PM in the HUB Susquehanna Room, in order to raise awareness for eating disorders. They are teaming up with Delta Phi Epsilon and the Center for Health and Well-Being to put on this program as a part of ANAD Week, a week-long event to raise awareness for eating disorders. Anybody is welcome to come play music, read poetry, or share personal stories. They will also have an option to donate to this cause (oh, and there will be Insomnia Cookies!).

Escalation Workshop

This is a friendly reminder that Haven Project is hosting an ‘Escalation Workshop’ tonight, Wednesday, February 21st beginning at 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the Humanities and Social Science building, Room 217.
Attendance vouchers will be made available to attendees.

Come to the Escalation Workshop to view the short film, “Escalation,” which has been repeatedly described as “eye opening” and “deeply recognizable” to learn the warning signs of an unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship and what you can do about it.

One Love Foundation was created by Sharon Love, in memory of her daughter, Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia senior who died on May 3, 2010 as a result of relationship violence.
