Are you Getting the Signal?


Thursday, Feb 21

7:30pm in Kulas Auditorium


"Sex Signals", through improvisation and audience interaction, explores how social pressures, gender stereotypes, unrealistic fantasies, and false preconceptions all contribute to the tensions often found in dating.  The presentation encourages the audience to both provide solutions for creating safer and healthier interpersonal sexual relationships, and brainstorm how they could positively intervene as bystanders when they witness a friend or stranger in a vulnerable situation that could lead to sexual violence.  Come early as seats are limited!  


Sponsored by the Program in Applied Ethics, Arrupe Scholars Program, Residence Life, the JCU Counseling Center, and the Office of Student Activities.

Make a prayer request or mass intention!

"Prayer Angels"

Prayer Angels is a new student-initiated prayer group on campus that has two goals: 1) to spread the awareness and power of prayer, 2) to break down religious divides. Anonymous prayer requests can be submitted, using this Wufoo form,  and each request will be distributed to the "prayer angels," who will personally pray for each intention. Anyone can submit a prayer request. Contact Ashley for more information.
