Signing off one last time: Hi all, it’s Ben, your
Photo of student writer Ben at his office work station called the Box“Campus Happenings” editor. This is it. Our final newsletter until August and the final one of my career! After I take a couple summer session classes, I’ll be graduating. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the readers for rolling with me this year, it was a blast and brought me closer than ever to the Lynx Community. I’m excited for the future, but I’ll never forget my time as editor here. Good luck with finals and as always, thanks for reading!

First-of-a-kind success! The “End the Stigma; Keep Talking” mental health awareness event was in the works for months, spearheaded by graduate student Noreen Khan, led by Office of Case Management and co-sponsored by the Counseling Center, the Phoenix Center, Student Government Association, Dean of Students Office, Center for Identity & Inclusion, and the Writing Center. And, the efforts paid off when an audience of a hundred  witnessed emotional and personal storytelling.
The successful evening is detailed in The Sentry student newspaper by writer Holly McCloskey and photographer Victoria Moffat.
