Come to Norris for December Exam Relief

No one likes the stress that comes with finals, but everyone loves miniature horses, free food, and late night breakfasts, right? Norris is offering exam relief activities that range from massages to Whole Foods gift card giveaways!

‘Build Her a Myth’ Uses Paper Dresses to Critique Feminine Culture

Romance novels. Lots of pages from romance novels. That’s the medium for Carrie Schumacher’s Build Her a Myth, the current exhibit at Dittmar Gallery in Norris Center. But her creation is not what you would expect. Schumacher used the pages to create life-sized (and some mini-sized) dresses, showcased on mannequins, to “examine the demands that feminine culture places upon women,” particularly at the intersection of fashion and romance.

Build Her a Myth is on display through Sunday, December 4. Read more to see video of the exhibit.

Understanding Native American Two-Spirit Identity

The Two-Spirit event, featured in Northwestern’s celebration of Native American Heritage Month, will open up an opportunity for students to explore the Native American identity through a workshop hosted by multidisciplinary Grammy winner Ty Defoe.

Participate in Movember – Men’s Wellness Awareness Month

Movember evokes images of artfully styled mustaches, and overgrown beards for the sake of raising awareness for men’s health. Channeling that same mustached spirit, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Center for Awareness, Response, and Education (CARE) are collaborating to give Movember a bit of a different spin. Everyone is still encouraged to grow out their ‘staches and beards in No-Shave November fashion, but Northwestern’s Movember strives to raise awareness for men’s wellness and mental health.

Native American Heritage Month is a Month of Place and History

Join Northwestern in celebrating Native American Heritage Month this November with events that range from film festivals to commemorations. Because of Northwestern’s unique tie to Native American history, it is vital for students to learn and experience aspects of Native American culture.
