A documentary by Anna Campbell ’11, Lauren Brauchli ’11, and River Ferris ’11 has won a College Television Award. The awards are given by Television Academy Foundation and considered the highest honor in the nation for college television students.

The film, “Bound by Hope, One Family's Story,” features a Pennsylvania family as they struggle with their 4-year-old son's debilitating and rare condition, F.O.P. which causes the bones to calcify and harden, severely limiting movement. There is no cure for this disease.

The filmmakers, all television-radio majors, produced their winning project for their Video Workshop class last Fall, and previously completed the Documentary Workshop course in their junior year.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides cost-free online screening for a variety of mental health topics.  Complete an online screening to learn if you might be a good candidate for mental health treatment before a crisis occurs.  As Benjamin Franklin said: "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

Coping with the death of a loved one does not have to be a solitary experience.  Living with Grief is a weekly drop-in support group for students who have experienced the death of a loved one.

The group meets at 5:15 every Thursday in the Health Promotion Resource Room (right down the hall from CAPS).

Recent group participants want you to know you are not alone.  And, if you know someone has experienced a loss, don't be afraid to ask open-ended questions, like:

  • How did it happen?
  • When did it happen?
  • What happened?
  • Tell me something about ...

There is no timetable for when the grief process ends, it just changes over time.  So, whether you've experienced a loss recently or some years ago, you are welcome at Living with Grief.

Individuals needing accommodations should contact as soon as possible.

Career Services offers a variety of workshops to help you build your skills in key areas of  your career development.  Our next offering is on finding a job or internship.
