Monday Afternoon Announcements

Sleep Focus Group:

The Health Advancement & Prevention Strategies Office is working on a research project with the Graduate Sociology Department to learn more about the sleep patterns of undergraduate students at Lehigh. 

Previous research shows that students involved with Greek life often report poorer quality of sleep. The researchers are looking for Greek students willing to participate in a focus group and discuss their sleep patterns and potential ways to improve the quantity and quality of sleep on campus. The focus group for Greek students will be held on Tuesday, November 11 from 4:10-5:00pm in MG 110. Light refreshments will be provided. 

Please RSVP by Friday, November 7 as spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in participating or have any further questions please feel free to email  

Standards Board Training:  
OFSA and the Office of Student Conduct will be hosting a training program discussing chapter standards board and judicial processes on Tuesday November 4th and Thursday November 13th from 4-6pm.  Every chapter is expected to have their Standards/Judicial officer participate in one of the two sessions offered. 
Please complete the following survey indicating which session you plan to attend.  The survey will also provide the facilitators with helpful information in preparation for the program.  The survey was to have been completed by Wednesday October 29th, so please fill it out if you haven’t done so already:
