At the end of each semester, things get hectic and stressful for everyone on campus. The pressure of managing deadlines, relationships, work, internships, summer plans, travel, money, housing… it can seem endless. When things get particularly stressful for me, I take comfort in the knowledge that at Appalachian, we genuinely care about - and take care of - one another. Disagreements with roommates, friends, co-workers or professors come up, and that's life. So is juggling all of the demands on our time, energy and attention. But at Appalachian, all that goes out the window when we know someone needs our help. I see examples of generosity and selflessness from our students, staff and faculty every day, and that's what makes me want to get up and come to work, even on the really hard days. The nature of life is that it comes with challenges, but managing these challenges is easier when we can lean on others every now and again. When you see someone who needs some support, offer it. When you need support, ask for it. And when support is offered, take it. In doing so, managing the challenges becomes easier, and celebrating success is even sweeter.

The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the United States. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. It's up to all of us to be active participants. Bystander awareness and intervention is key to changing how we think and act, so we can create a future free of sexual violence.
You can find out more about Appalachian's bystander awareness initiatives and join the conversation. Begin by liking Red Flag Campaign (App State) on Facebook.
