The Details *
MU Counseling Center is hosting a presentation on perfectionism by Lee Neagle, M.A. Executive Director of Aloria Health Institute of Education and Research.

“In our society, generally speaking being seen as a perfectionist is considered a positive trait, it invokes images of a disciplined, hardworking, and meticulous individual. The reality is much more bleak as struggling with perfectionism leaves individuals with feelings of insecurity and constant dissatisfaction. Throughout this discussion we will review the consequences of perfectionism both physically and emotionally while also reviewing ways we can be more mindful and compassionate with ourselves while staying goal oriented.”

Appetizers and drinks will be provided.

LRC Tip of the Week: Learning to say, “LATER”!

Article *
Postponing tasks or routines that can be put off until your school work is finished can be the most difficult challenge of time management for college students. It is tempting to succumb to unexpected opportunities that look appealing,. The result can sometimes be seen in poor performance on a test, on a paper, or in a work of art. The trick is to remember that distracting activities will be more enjoyable later without the pressure of the test, assignment, etc. hanging over your head. Try to think in different terms. You are not missing out on something fun, you are postponing the opportunity. Instead of saying “no” learn to say “later”.

Parking

Article *
Just a friendly reminder that the four MIAD temporary visitor parking spaces in the surface parking lot on the corner of Erie and Young streets are not for student, staff or faculty parking. These spaces are reserved for legitimate MIAD visitors. Also if you park in the student lot you must have a valid MIAD parking permit properly displayed so it can be seen. Summerfest requires a list of all vehicles with valid permits and both MIAD and summerfest security check the lot daily. Any vehicle without a valid parking permit is subject to being ticketed. and once the ticket has been written it can not be taken back and you will have to pay the ticket Remember that you must renew your permit each semester, last semesters permit is no longer valid.

STUDENT BODY @ Marquette University

Article *
Marquette University will be presenting STUDENT BODY, a play dealing with issues surrounding sexual assault on college campuses, from February 15-25, 2018.

Frank Winters’ STUDENT BODY addresses struggles with sexual assault and rape culture on college campuses through the actions of a group of students. After a party, a camera is discovered with footage of what may be a sexual assault; their struggles and ultimate inability to decide what to do lead audience members to question what they would do in a similar situation. We will be presenting the show and hosting a series of post-show talkbacks, promoting dialogue between students, peers, and campus-wide experts such as Title IX officials, counselors, and MUPD respondents.

As this issue pertains to all college students Marquette wants to invite students from other Milwaukee area schools to join us.

Student tickets are available for $10 and a group of 10 or more individuals of any age can get tickets for $9 each. In addition, tickets are only $6 on Wednesday, February 21 and on Thursday, February 22 students can get 2 tickets for $12.

Please consider attending and help initiate a conversation that will help better address the prominent issue of sexual assault on college campuses.
