Women’s History Month Highlights

Check out all of the events and activities we have planned.  Sponsored by the National Women’s History Alliance, this year’s theme is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.”  According to the Alliance, the theme is a “tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.”  Head over to the Alliance’s website to learn more!

Post University Movie Night – “Suffragette”

Women’s Student Leadership Panel

We’re treating you to a movie night in honor of Women’s History Month!  Check the University Calendar for a link to watch the movie virtually any time on Tuesday, March 22, 2022. The Women’s Leadership Panel is a student-led panel of female-born and/or woman-identified main campus and online students who hold leadership roles at or outside of Post University. Panelists will describe their experiences and challenges as women leaders and share advice for young women in leadership roles who are likely to face challenges due to sexism, racism, and other oppressions.  Join us virtually on Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at 1:45 p.m. Eastern time.

 

⚠ Campus Traffic Alert ⚠

 

A message from Campus Safety and The Office of the Senior Vice President:

Keeping the safety of students, associates, and Post University neighbors a priority, the following traffic alerts are being shared and will be enforced on campus.  New signage is being installed to remind us all of the proper speed limits and correct routes for exiting campus roads.

  • Associates and Students are reminded that the North Gate is an Entrance only. Please do not exit the campus onto Country Club Rd. from this gate. The appropriate exit is from the North Parking Lot onto Umberfield Rd.
  • Additionally, the speed limit on Campus is 10 MPH. Help us keep our pedestrians safe and slow down while driving on campus.
  • Finally, please obey all posted traffic signs along our neighboring streets, paying closer attention to stop signs and speed limits.

We value our status as a “good neighbor” and are listening to the neighborhood regarding how to keep us all safe.

 

 

Weekly Wellness Corner

The Weekly Wellness Corner is brought to you by the Counseling Center – here, you’ll find content, tips, tricks, programs, and resources to help you thrive as a Post Eagle! 

For this week, we’re encouraging you to think about ways you can protect your peace in real life, but also online. 

We all have different levels of consumption when it comes to news and social media.  However, limiting our consumption of media can benefit our mental health.  One such way to do this is by cutting down on our mindless scrolling of news media and social media apps.  Aubry from the Counseling Center has started to implement “No Scroll Sunday,” and it has made a positive difference in not just her screen time reports, but also her mental health. “I started ‘No Scroll Sunday’ in December when I found myself spending too much time on my phone, she says. “I was scrolling when I could be doing more beneficial things for my emotional well-being, such as reading a book or taking a walk. It’s a good way to start a new week.”

Not ready to commit to a whole Sunday away from your phone?  Start small.  Set daily screen time limits on the apps you find yourself mindlessly opening multiple times a day.
