November 5th to November 14 marks the 4th Annual CSUN Campus Clothing and Food Drive.
We are reaching out to CSUN departments, clubs, organizations, students, and staff, to help those in need, by donating various clothing, food, toy, and book items during this time period.
You can donate items at any of our drop off bins located at the following centers around campus...
MIC (Matador Involvement Center)
Sierra Hall (1st Floor)
Matador Bookstore Complex
USU Welcome Desk
Student Recreation Center
Community Center (DORMS)
On November 14 we will line the Oviatt Library Staircase with all the different items donated to the drive to show the collective impact individuals and groups can make on our community.
At 12pm, we will have a ceremony celebrating the amount of donations we have collected.
All proceeds will be donated to MEND (Meet Each Meet with Dignity), a nonprofit organization in Pacoima, CA that serves over 31,000 individuals per month. You can learn more about MEND at www.mendpoverty.org.
This event will focus less on the coming out and transition process specific to the person who is Trans identified and speak more about the struggles faced by the loved ones around them and how they transitioned with them. It will create an opportunity for the audience to place themselves in the shows of those whose loved ones have come out as Trans and how they dealt with the process.
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Fourth Floor, Sierra Hall 451
The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences presents
A Richard W. Smith Lecture in Cultural Studies featuring:
Pal Zak on Recent Research on Brain Chemistry: A Revolution in the Sciences of Good and Evil
Why do human beings engage in courageous acts of compassion but also perpetrate violence? Could the apparent flip-flopping morality of our species have a hidden explanation?
Paul Zak's new book The Moral Molecule: The Source of Love and Prosperity is a first-hand account of the discovery of a molecule that makes us moral. It reveals that compassion is part of our human nature, why loneliness can kill you, and why your neighbor may be a psychopath.
From the laboratory to the jungles of Papua New Guinea, Paul Zak takes you on an amazing journey that reveals what it means to be human.
This event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451. Reservations are requested.
Collaboratoria: Graduate Student and Faculty Dance Performance features new choreography performed by CSUN's top dancers. Event runs til 10pm.
