May Work/Life Line: Health BBQ

Contributed by Katie Sack on 05/01/2014 

The month of May means Memorial Day is coming, which marks the beginning of summer foods and cooking for most people. Barbequing is a popular part of summer meals, but it can wreak havoc on efforts towards healthy eating. Follow these tips to stay healthy all summer long and still enjoy your favorite barbequed foods!

  • Instead of always grilling meat, use more heart-healthy fish such as salmon or trout
  • Substitute hamburgers with skinless chicken breast or turkey burgers
  • Use low-fat cheese on burgers and sandwiches, and choose rolls that are 100% whole grain
  • Burned meat can mean consuming carcinogens – avoid overcooking, be sure to clean off any old charred food before using your grill again, and marinate food before cooking to reduce the presence of carcinogenic materials

There are so many things to do as the semester ends, don’t forget about your mail! We offer the following suggestions to help provide continuity in your mail-related services.

Begin notifying the publishers of magazines and newspapers you receive where you will be in May. Their toll free numbers and web sites are usually listed in the front or back of the publication. This mail class is not forwarded by the USPS from our College. The USPS notifies the publishers of the permanent address we provide on the publication and then discards the mail piece.

 We will sort mail into mail boxes until May 16th. All packages will be collected at the Phillips Hall Post Office.

Mail must be picked up from the residence hall mail rooms (except Circle Apts.) by 8:30 a.m., Monday May 19th. After that time, all mail will be moved to the Mail Center located in the General Services Building.

Some Firefox users have reported (and ITS has confirmed) that word wrap in OWA is not working correctly when typing a message (the typed text does not wrap to a new line). Microsoft acknowledges the problem and is investigating. The workaround is to use a different Web browser, such as Chrome or Internet Explorer (Windows), or Chrome or Safari (Mac).

The deadline has passed but the Campus Store will still accept your order for Masters or DPT student regalia.  Please access the Campus Store website and place your order while we still have plenty of stock.
