Rubber Band Remembrances
The Mental Health Subcommittee is encouraging students, faculty, and staff to acknowledge LU's recent losses to mental health issues by wearing a rubber band around their wrists. The rubber bands read: Speak. Listen. Remember. The idea behind these words are that we should SPEAK more openly about our troubles and relay concerns to appropriate campus staff/faculty, LISTEN and support each other, and REMEMBER those we have lost.
