Everyone likes to nap on the occasion. There are different types of naps, and each has it own benefits. Even people like Einstein and Brahms took naps to help them clear their minds. Naps should be short and just have one full sleep cycle to wake up thinking more clearly. At night however, sleeping in total darkness helps you fall asleep quicker and stay asleep better. The Bulletin Board by the drinking fountain has some more information about napping.
College is a time when our healthy eating habits kind of fly out the window. Some foods really just aren’t goo for us, college kids especially.

On Sunday October 10th, Hugunin kicked off homecoming week by participating in Towel Toss Volleyball. Each team had 6 players on the court, and they were paired up with a towel that was used to catch and throw the volleyball.

Safe sex is an important topic to cover. Students don’t know all the services and things that the health center here provides.
