Lunch and University Day Expo
Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for young Americans between the ages of 16 and 24. Recent suicides at OSU highlight how important it is for faculty, staff, and peers to feel aware and prepared when dealing with depressed or suicidal students. Come learn how you can understand the warning signs and interventions available for students dealing with depression or suicidal thoughts. In this workshop you will explore your values and beliefs regarding suicide and learn tools and skills to help you feel more prepared about what to say and who to contact if you encounter a young person who is depressed.
Presenter: Jim Gouveia, CAPS
2:30 pm Student Success Center
Located between the parking garage and the CH2M HILL Alumni Center on 26th Street.
The 30,000-sq-ft facility is being built to house distinctive programs that help all students achieve their full potential—student athletes as well as the general student population. The Student Success Center was made possible by generous donors to The Campaign for OSU, the university’s first campus-wide fundraising initiative, and matching bonds from the State of Oregon.
The $14 million, three-story facility houses existing and new programs, including academic support and counseling services, learning laboratories, and proactive services to help students transition from high school to college-level learning. The facility includes space for classrooms, a computer lab, study lounge, and commons area as well as counseling offices, meeting rooms, and tutorial spaces. Come explore the newest facility on campus during this grand opening event.
Any faculty and staff interested in helping new students move in on September 18th or 19th between 8 AM and 5 PM they can e-mail UHDS at email@example.com
