Don't Forget, Send Silence Packing is this Week!

Don't forget - Send Silence Packing is coming to campus this Tuesday, April 25th! Active Minds, Inc. has collected, and continues to collect, backpacks and personal stories in memory and in honor of loved ones impacted by suicide. By displaying backpacks with personal stories of loved ones that put a “face” to lives lost to suicide, Send Silence Packing carries the message that preventing suicide is not just about lowering statistics, but also about saving the lives of students. We hope you have time to stop by Tower Lawn this Tuesday!
