IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH CONFIDENCE
From Wendy Nathan - Do you ever struggle with confidence? Or, failure anxiety? One of my students follows a blogger named Mark Mason. He is quite wise. I am sharing with you one of his blogs called "The Confidence Conundrum" because it's one of those things that can have a meaningful impact on our lives once we "get it." He drives his point home at the end, so keep with it. It won't take up but 3 minutes, but it will be worth our time. Click here to read the post.
 
FREE MASSAGE AND REFLEXOLOGY FOR STUDENTS
Each semester Campus Counseling provides a wellness program called "Ahhh Day." It is a day of free massage and reflexology provided by licensed professionals. Ahhh Day is April 20th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Fitness Room on the 4th floor of Madison. Each session is 15 minutes. Sign-up on the door of the student lounge to ensure you have a spot. Please show up a little early. If you fail to show up or come late, you will lose your slot. If you forget to sign-up, still come, as we can squeeze you in. You have worked hard all semester, and deserve some pampering! Questions? Call Wendy Nathan, Director of Counseling at 419-251-1454.

TOYS,TOYS,TOYS!!!!
AAMN (Men in Nursing) is sponsoring a gently used or new toy drive. These toys will be going to Belize or Jamaica as Prof. Gail's husband and others are in the process of building and stocking resource centers for the children in these areas. We are in need of children's books, toys, puzzles, VHS tapes (PG Level), and sports equipment. There will be boxes labeled throughout the college marked TOYS! Please consider bringing in what you can! We will wash them and sort them....SPRING is here, time to clean and toss some things our way! Thanks MERCY family!

A.L.I.C.E. TRAINING - FLYER
The Mercy Public Safety Department is hosting a series of A.L.I.C.E. based forums to provide information, awareness and training for employees and students in the event of an incident involving an armed individual.
A.L.I.C.E. is a set of proactive strategies that increase chances of survival during an armed intruder event. While no one can guarantee “no causalities or injuries”, passing on knowledge will empower people with options of survival.
The class is a PowerPoint based presentation with several interactive exercises to reinforce the principles of the A.L.I.C.E. program. For upcoming Mercy College campus dates and registration click here.
ALERT: Ensure co-workers know of the situation and call 911
LOCKDOWN: Lock doors to provide a time barrier
INFORM: Keep police up to date on the persons location and actions
COUNTER: Interrupt the physical activities of the person
EVACUATE: Leave the area as fast as possible if the opportunity presents itself
