Campus Alert system test, Thursday, Oct. 30
On Thursday, Oct. 30, CU-Boulder will test the Campus Alert emergency messaging system. Students, faculty and staff who have signed up to receive emergency messages via cell phone, emails or both will receive notifications shortly after 12 p.m. on Oct. 30. Users are encouraged to save Campus Alert to their phone contacts so that calls may be easily identified. If you have not yet signed up to receive emergency alerts visit the website. On Oct. 30, a table in the dining area of the UMC will offer Campus Alert sign up opportunities from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Community members will be assisted and have their questions answered.

Debating about getting a flu shot?

The influenza virus is the infectious virus that causes the flu. There is no way to kill the flu virus – antibiotics don't work. Prevention is the best way to stay healthy. Covering your nose and mouth when you cough, washing your hands, using hand sanitizer and receiving a flu shot are the most effective ways to prevent the flu. Get your flu shot Oct. 30 or 31 in UMC 235. For more information contact Wardenburg Health Center, (303) 492-5101 or visit the flu clinic website.

November Blood Drive

A blood drive hosted by Boulder Campus Staff Council and UCSU will take place Nov. 10 through 13 in UMC 235 and on Nov. 14 at the UMC Fountain and Norlin Library. Donate from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Bonfils needs 4,000+ donors each week for Colorado patients. Walk-ins are welcome, or contact Bonfils, 303-363-2300 to schedule an appointment. For more information contact Lori Jackson, (303) 492-5473.
