Relay For Life
March 31st 7pm - 7am, Barton Hall, Cornell

Here are some tips on how to fundraise:

If you go to the relay for life webpage and log into your headquarters, you will see an email tab. Click the tab. Make sure the template is at Ask for a donation email. It will provide you with content or if you want to edit it or add a personal story.

Ask your parents for email addresses from family and friends. Also utilize facebook and message and write on your friends walls.(10 people 10 dollars is 100 bucks!!!)

One last thing, if everyone would invite all your IC/CU friends to the RFL facebook event:

It would be a big help for advertising.
Thanks again.

Seats in the 1 credit FLEFF mini courses are still available, March 29-April 2.

Cutting to Cope: Understanding Self-Injury and How to Stop the Cycle
Monday, March 26th, 7:00 p.m., Clark Lounge

Cutting or burning yourself, interfering with the healing of wounds, hitting or bruising yourself, and biting your fingernails excessively are all forms of self-injury.

Self-Injury is the act of physically hurting yourself on purpose without the intent of committing suicide. It is a method of coping during an emotionally difficult time that helps some people temporarily feel better because they have a way to physically express and release the tension and the pain they hold inside.

Learn more about self-injury and how to respond to a friend who might be hurting her/himself.

A panel presentation by: Dr Vivian Lorenzo, Hammond Health Center; Dr Suki Montgomery, Counseling Center; Lind Koenig, Residential Life, and a self-injurer in recovery.
