November Student Organization of the Month - The Meditation & Mindfulness Club
Nov 10, 2016 by Skye McLeod
The November Student Organization of the Month Award goes to The Meditation & Mindfulness Club!
The members of the Meditation and Mindfulness Club have held numerous events over this Fall semester designed to improve the overall wellness and health of students on campus. In September and October, the Meditation and Mindfulness Club hosted an outdoor meeting and “Flash Meditation” at the Bell Tower in order to reach a large number of the students and promote mental health awareness. In October, M&M hosted a public lecture at the Marx Library in which they invited clinical psychologists and meditators to educate the USA community about effective coping mechanisms and introductory meditation. Recently, the M&M Club distributed “Random Acts of Kindness” to students in the form of Halloween treat bags containing encouraging messages, candy, and other goodies. These goody bags were handed out to at the Library during Halloween as a way to brighten student’s days and lower stress. The Meditation and Mindfulness Club believes that creating a positive community on campus is vital to our students overall wellness. These members have exhibited their drive to help South students reach stillness and a clarity, which will have a positive impact in all other facets of life.
