January 21 2:00 p.m.–2:50 p.m.

Most of us are affected by the change in seasons – it is normal to feel more cheerful and energetic when the sun is shining and the days are longer, or to find that you eat more or sleep longer in winter. We get to live in a magical place that is green and captivating year round; however during winter time the rain that keeps Oregon green can affect us in different ways. Many students struggle to find the will power it takes to be a successful student when we are away from the sun. Maybe it is you or someone you are close to, in this workshop we will describes the symptoms and the different types of treatment available for SAD. We will also identify coping skills and ways in which we can take better take care of ourselves and others and what friends and family can do to help during the winter blues. This workshop is free and open to UO students, faculty, and staff.

January 21 6:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m.

Join us winter term as we host a series of speakers that are working to redefine the term “outdoorsy”. Often times the term “outdoorsy” seems exclusive to one demographic: straight, white men. Throughout the term we will be bringing in a variety of different speakers who will discuss creating and holding space in the Outdoors where often times their identities are not always welcome. Our first speaker will be drag queen and environmental activist Pattie Gonia, who will discuss her gender identity and expression in the outdoors. Pattie strives to create a more inclusive outdoors and inspire people to go outside, even if they’ve never been before. She truly embodies that being outdoors and fabulous are not mutually exclusive.

Date: Thursday, Jan. 21st
Time: 6pm
