Learn about your brain and body

As part of the My Favorite Lecture series, Michael Steger, an associate professor in the Counseling and Psychology and Applied Social Psychology programs, will be speaking about his research on what makes a person’s life meaningful.

The event will take place Wednesday at 4:15 p.m. in the TILT Building, room 221.

According to the university website, Steger’s lecture will be an adapted version of those he presents to his abnormal psychology classes. He will speak of disorders like hypochondriasis, conversion disorder, somatization disorder and body dysmorphic disorder.

The lecture, which is presented by TILT’s Learning Programs, is one of the five or six typically included in the annual series that features distinguished professors.

Tips on leaving the nest

Students learn many things during their time in college. But, when the time to leave finally rolls around, not many know how to go about the event they’ve been working toward during their entire academic career: graduation.

On Wednesday at 10 a.m., the CSU Bookstore will be hosting a Spring Grad Fair, aimed at giving graduating students the information that they need but never knew to ask.

From class rings, to cap and gown information, to graduation announcements and alumni information, this event allows students to learn a little more before taking the big walk on graduation day.

Signing up for summer days

CSU’s youth summer sport day camps have recently opened up registration for this coming season, allowing Fort Collins children and CSU students alike a chance to participate in the Health and Exercise Science-sponsored event.

The camp is open to children in kindergarten to eighth grade and also offers counselor-in-training opportunities to interested participants ages 14 through 17.

According to a university news release, camp participants can choose from several week-long camps that cater to those interested in baseball and softball, basketball, in-line hockey, soccer, volleyball and tennis.

The camp season is set to begin on May 29 and end Aug. 17. Each one-week session costs $155, but discounts are available.
