Volunteer Opportunity next Friday

We have an upcoming UK Concessions Event for Gymnastics on Friday, March 11, 2016. Please let me know if you can volunteer for this game ASAP. The details for this game are as followed:

  • CHECK-IN4:00pm– Memorial Coliseum – Parking at the Joe Craft Center Parking lot located directly behind Memorial Coliseum.
  • DOORS OPEN: 5:30pm
  • EVENT TIME: 7:00pm

We can meet at the center if you want to carpool together, but we will need to leave the PCSO Center by 3:30pm! If you plan to meet us here at the center, please let me know that also.

We also need to know if you have your UK shirts and hats and if you aren’t working we need to turn these in at this game! If you don’t have a UK Concession shirt or hat at this point you can wear any UK shirt and hat.

We will need 12-14 volunteers for this event.  We will be frying your own chicken tenders and fries in the stand as well as hamburgers and hotdogs in the oven and of course all other concession food (nachos, popcorn etc.). There are also only 4 cash registers so the lines may back up quickly!

This is the last game we have scheduled, so come out and let’s raise the PCSO some money and have fun doing so!

From our inbox: Opportunity to participate in a study on stressful events and sexual orientation

From our inbox:
I am a doctoral graduate student at Iowa State University and I am conducting a study for my dissertation. This study examines sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, stressful events, and mental and physical health. Lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, asexuals, queer, and transgender people experience unique stressors. By learning more about these stressors and how they influence health, we can take steps towards improving the lives of LGBAT+ people and others. Although I’m especially interested in recruiting LGBAT+ participants, anyone is welcome to participate!
Participation in this research study is completely confidential. To participate in this survey, please visit https://iastatelas.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_dgSaoZSGOsUaq7r. I have attached a flyer that has tabs with the study link if you prefer to post an announcement electronically or in hard-copy.
This study is being conducted with the authorization of the Iowa State University Institutional Review Board (Study Approval #14-627; 515-294-4566; IRB@iastate.edu), and is open to all individuals 18 years or older who have internet access and who are fluent in English. The study is conducted online and would take approximately 45-55 minutes to complete.
If you have any questions or concerns about the study, please contact me (Karen Bittner) atkbittner@iastate.edu or 515-451-8503.
Thank you for your consideration.
