Because of a scheduling error, Thursday’s self-care day will now feature free massages by Massage Addicts from 9:30 a.m. to noon, rather than 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., in the Holy Cross House conference room. Registration for the free massages will be available on campus this week.

Two students with the STU Newman Society, a group that aims to share the value of Catholicism through the arts and education, received $100 each to help attend a conference. The Chinese Students Association was granted $283 for campus events, and one individual was granted $150 to attend a conference. Constitutions for the STU branch of Her Campus international online media outlet, the STU Tennis Club, and the Communications of Public Policy Society were approved by the committee and now officially have the support of the university.
