Student Workshop with Dr. Al Fuertes: Self-Care and Well-Being for College Student Leaders

School of Integrative Studies

Thursday, November 16, 2017 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Student Union I, 3B

College students, including student leaders, often face moderate to high stress levels as a result of pressure from heavy course loads, peer pressure, family and school/campus obligations, having a part-time if not full-time job, financial debt, or doing volunteer work and community service.

2017 Hunger Banquet

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
GMU Fairfax Campus - Ike's Multipurpose Room

On our planet, one in eight people goes hungry. But hunger is not about too many people and too little food. Our rich and bountiful planet produces enough food to feed every woman, man, and child on earth. Hunger is about power. Its roots lie in inequalities in access to resources. The results are illiteracy, poverty, war, and the inability of families to grow or buy food. Few experiences bring to life these inequalities more powerfully than a Hunger Banquet event. Unique and memorable, the Hunger Banquet can help raise awareness, as organizers and participants alike experience first- hand how our decisions affect others in the world. We hope you’ll join us for this impactful experience!
