"IRL": Social Life
Are you new to Appalachian State University and/or Boone?! Do you wish you had more information about how to live your best life while you're here?!
If the answer to either of those questions was yes, or even if it wasn't!, come hangout with some fantastic Appalachian State Women's Center Volunteers and me at our first "IRL" event!
"IRL", or "In Real Life", is a series that has been designed to provide REAL students REAL information about how to REALLY get the WHOLE experience during your stay here at Appalchian State and in Boone! Our first segment, "Social Life", has been designed to provide information such as:
*Getting involved at Appalachian State, both through campus clubs and activities as well as volunteering in and contributing to the community
*Providing maps of Campus, AppalCart, and the surrounding local areas
*Discussing safety precautions to recognize and take when using ride-share services (Boone Student Beeper) and different social media outlets utilized by ASU students and various others throughout the community (Appstate Classifieds)
*Emergency contacts and resources one can utilize and refer to others
*And lastly, and one of the larger themes of this event, dating and safe sex practices
COME JOIN US FOR GOOD FOOD, GOOD INFORMATION, AND A GOOD TIME AND WE HOPE TO SEE YA THERE!! (:
Weekly programming, Tuesdays from 7-8:30pm, in the Women's Center (PSU110)! This is a philanthropic event where cloth prosthetics (bra inserts) are knitted or crocheted for women that have had a mastectomy from breast cancer.
The Vagina Monologues is an annual production of Eve Ensler's famous play. The play is staged around Valentine's Day, lovingly deemed V-DAY. With the help of a volunteer cast and crew, the play, performed on three consecutive nights, gives voice to some of the issues women face around the world, their victimization, and their resilience. Ticket sales for the Vagina Monologues go towards local charities and organizations benefitting women. Ten percent of ticket sales go towards the VDAY campaign, which pledges to end violence against all women and girls. Ninety percent of ticket sales go towards OASIS which is a non-profit organization in Boone, NC that is dedicated to ending domestic violence and sexual assault. The Vagina Monologues is by far the Women's Center's biggest event, often raising more than $8,000.
Rape Culture Awareness Week (April) is a week dedicated to bringing attention to rape culture in society and at Appalachian. Typical events for this week include: Denim Day and Take Back The Night.
