SRU's third annual Live Like A Stoic Week is underway!
Stoic philosophy, developed by the ancient Greeks, ponders questions about life and how people should treat others, while ridding oneself of emotions in order to prevent suffering. This year's theme is "Stoicism at Work." As part of the event students, faculty, staff and members of the community read and work through Stoic texts in thinking about how to better overcome the personal and professional obstacles that may arise in the work and educational environments.
Participants have been meeting at 6AM every morning in the Slippery Rock Ski Lodge. Despite the early bird time, attendance is the highest it's ever been!
If you want to participate, there's still time! Contact Andrew Winters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Want to live like a Stoic for a week? Attend the informational meeting today from 4-5 to learn more.
The third annual Live Like A Stoic Week will be held at the SRU ski lodge starting Monday, October 16. It's FREE to attend and OPEN to all community members.
October is National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) – a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. NAHM was launched by Americans for the Arts 30 years ago as National Arts Week in honor of the twentieth anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1993, it was reestablished by Americans for the Arts and national arts partners as a month-long celebration, with goals of:
FOCUSING on the arts at local, state, and national levels;
ENCOURAGING individuals and organizations to participate in the arts;
ALLOWING governments and businesses to show their support of the arts; and
RAISING public awareness about the role the arts and humanities play in our communities and lives.
We have a TON of exciting events planned this October to celebrate National Arts & Humanities month. Check out what's happening on campus and in our community!
