Psi Chi is participating in the Survivor Quilt Project that is being conducted by Sexual Assault Services. The Survivor Quilt is a visual display to remember those who have been victimized by dating/domestic violence and sexual assault to bring awareness of these issues to our campus community. The final quit will be hung on campus during Victimís Rights Week in April. Quilt squares were distributed during the Psi Chi meeting and need to be dropped off by March 17th to Sub I Room 205. If anyone would like to participate in this project and was not able to attend the Psi Chi meeting, quilt squares can be picked up from Sub I Room 205. They really need YOUR support, so far they only have a few quilt square contributions so please stop by and pick one up. The instructions can be found here.

Psi Chi will be having a training called Mason Cares Gatekeeper Training conducted by Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) on March 27th from 4:30-6:30pm in Sub II Ballroom 3BK. This training program was created in response to the Virginia Tech tragedy. It is training for faculty, students, and staff to help build a stronger safety net and support system for members of the Mason community. The training includes information about suicide including stats, signs, steps to take and referral resources. This is an effort to be aware of our surroundings as much as possible and reach out to those in need. CAPS will provide a certificate of completion for the training so that you may display this certificate in your work place and include that you'íve completed this training on your resume.

We are in the process of arranging another presentation that will be done by representatives from Opportunities Alternative Resources (OAR). This is an organization that is run by volunteers to provide services to inmates by helping become productive members of society once after incarceration. They will be presenting about OAR, what it does, having a discussion, and recruiting volunteers. The presentation is scheduled for April 10th from 4:30-6:00pm in a location to be determined. For more information about OAR or to become a volunteer please see http://www.oarfairfax.org

Aside from events, we have planned some time for fun:) Psi Chi will be going bowling on the evening of April 23rd and is having it arranged so that we can pay one fee for unlimited bowling. Mark you calendars and details about the location and exact time will be released soon.

The Psi Chi Annual Barb-Q will be Saturday, May 3rd from 12:00-4:00pm at Burke Lake Park. More details to follow.
