Healthy Relationships Month

 

fEBRUARY is HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS MONTH

 

Welcome to Healthy Relationships month! During the month of February, we'll be focusing on ways to create and maintain healthy and meaningful relationships with our friends, partners, and others through the lens of our theme: #UnbreakableBonds. 

Our events below seek to bring students together and give them ways to establish and strengthen the unbreakable bonds that do (or could!) exist between them. We hope you join us by sending a Candygram, getting tested, moving, and meditating with your friend or partner!

See you soon!

Let's Get Sweet - Candygrams | Monday, 2/7 thru Wednesday, 2/9 

Ready to get sweet? Send a special someone in your life a candygram by visiting one of our designated “Candygram Stations” during the month of February.

How does it work?  Stop by a Candygram table and write a note to your partner, friend or even for yourself!

  • Monday, 2/7 |11 am to 1 pm | Union Lobby
  • Tuesday, 2/8 | 11 am to 1 pm | ESLC Lobby
  • Wednesday, 2/9 | 11 am to 1 pm | Union West Ballroom

Afterward, our team will attach your note to a bag of treats and notify you or your recipient via email to pick up their Candygram at Center for Student Wellness (ESLC 2100).

There are two ways to create a special surprise: pick up the Candygram and deliver it in person yourself, or give us the recipient's email address, and we'll notify them a surprise is waiting for pick up (this means you'll need their UID or email address).

You must be a student to participate.

Partner Yoga | Tuesday, 2/8 at 7 pm to 8:15 pm | CRS Fitness Studios

Come get more connected with that special someone! Partner Yoga is a form of movement that utilizes two people to synch their breathing, postures, and movements. This can increase (romantic or platonic) intimacy as it requires new levels of trust, communication, and connection. In Partner Yoga, the act of moving together can help a duo feel more in sync. This event is limited to 10 couples (20 people) so register soon here!

You must be a student to participate.

 

Mobile STI Testing Clinic | Wednesday, 2/9 at 11 am to 1 pm | Union West Ballroom

Grab a friend and join us in the Union to get tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia... for free! Testing is easy, fast, and non-invasive. We will walk you through preparing your own urine sample and then offer you an informative and private follow-up conversation where you can get your sexual health questions answered.

You must be a student to participate.

Candygram Pickup | Monday, 2/14 and Tuesday, 2/15 at 8 am to 5 pm | ESLC 2100

Whether you're picking up a Candygram to hand deliver to a special someone (including yourself!) or you're waiting for that special someone to pick up the surprise, not the dates and times that Candygrams will be available. Staff will be present in ESLC 2100 all day (8 am to 5 pm) on February 14 and 15 and awaiting folks to pick up them!

Let's Get Deep - Date Night| Thursday, 2/17 at 3 pm to 5 pm | Union West Ballroom
