Mental Health Wellness Fair...The 2nd annual Chill Out will take place on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 6-8 p.m. at the St. Peter Community Center. The students in Abnormal Psychology classes at Gustavus have developed a plan to create a wellness fair with presenters and booths that will provide mental health resources for community members; mainly focusing on wellness, stress reduction, and awareness. 

Weight Watchers Meetings...Don’t wait for the new year – get a jump start on your health and wellness goals!! Join Weight Watchers today! Since February of 2012, our at-work Weight Watchers group members have lost hundreds of pounds. However, so many of our members have reached their “Lifetime Member” status - which is GREAT for them and proof that this program works! – but bad for us in that Lifetime members don’t count towards our membership requirements. In order to keep the Weight Watchers meeting at Scholarship America, we need at least 17 active members. If you have thought about joining us in the past, but were too shy – come on in to our informational meeting on November 21, 2013 – or stop in any Thursday at 12:15 and see what the program is all about. Bring your lunch! A Weight Watchers representative is available before and after the meetings for personal questions. If you would like more information, please contact Julie Wilkins at 507-931-0448 or jwilkins@scholarshipamerica.org.

To inform the campus community of the death of a current student, employee, or trustee; an emeritus professor or trustee; or an immediate family member of a current employee, contact the Office of the President (x7538 or jolene@gustavus.edu). Death announcements and funeral notices for students, current and emeritus faculty and employees, and trustees will be sent to the community via written notice from the president, posted on community-l, the official campus-wide e-mail list, and published in the Inside Gustavus or Summer Scoop. Notices for immediate family members of current employees will be published in the Inside Gustavus or the Summer Scoop unless they occur during a publication break, in which case they will be posted on employee-l.

Congregational Outreach

Retreats...Church Relations in the Center for Servant Leadership will be hosting weekend confirmation retreats for Transfiguration Lutheran Church of Bloomington from Friday, Nov. 8 to Sunday, Nov. 10 and for Woodlake Lutheran Church of Richfield on Saturday, Nov. 9. The retreat programs are a resource offered to ELCA congregations who are members of the Gustavus Association of Congregations.

Safety Snips

Winter Walking Safety...Winter is just around the corner so it's time to review some campus pedestrian safety tips:

  • Walking on snow or ice is especially treacherous and wearing proper footwear is essential. A pair of well insulated boots with good rubber treads is a must for walking during or after winter snows. Keeping a pair of rubber over-shoes with good treads which fit over your street shoes is a good idea during the winter months.
  • When walking on an icy or snow-covered walkway, take short steps and walk at a slower pace so you can react quickly to a change in traction. Be aware that ice may be lurking under a light dusting of snow.
  • When walking on a sidewalk which has not been cleared and you must walk in the street, walk against the traffic and as close to the curb as you can.
  • Be on the lookout for snow removal vehicles in parking lots and walkways. Make eye contact with the equipment operator so they know you can see them. Be aware that approaching vehicles may not be able to stop at crosswalks or stop signs.
  • Wear reflective or brightly colored garments for exercise routes that enter streets and roads during lowlight conditions.
  • Don’t walk with your hands in your pockets, walk with your hands out and wear gloves so you can break your fall if you do slip.
  • Avoid cellphone use, texting and headsets while walking on slippery walkways. Look ahead at your path of travel and use handrails on slippery steps.
  • Be aware that snow can melt and refreeze overnight on walkways. Call Physical Plant at extension x7504 to report icy walkways and parking lots.
