Two open houses are scheduled, on Feb. 19 and March 18. Applications are available at gustavus.edu/reslife/cf/be-a-cf, and are due by April 1.
     PAs serve as resource people, role models, and referral agents regarding alcohol, drug, and health-related issues and promote healthy lifestyles through programmed activities, theme weeks, workshops in residence halls and classes, etc. Submit recommendations of service-oriented student leaders to Judy Douglas (alcohol & drug education) by Feb. 11.

Human Rights Award Nominations Sought... The St. Peter Human Rights Commission annually recognizes an individual or organization in St. Peter that has furthered human rights in the community with its Human Rights Award.

Call or e-mail Michelle Twait (x7563 or mtwait) for a nomination form. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 19.
