- LOL - Live Out Loud
In the fast-paced world we live in, we often fail to take a little time for LOL. That's LIVE Out Loud! LOL'ing means making time to do the things that put you in a great state of mind. Activities like exercise, connecting with friends, working on a hobby, or playing with your children go a long way in establishing an LOL lifestyle.
We are kicking off the LOL: Live Out Loud wellness challenge on Wednesday, Oct. 14. This six-week program challenges you to get in the habit of taking time each day to engage in a little bit of LOL activity. It is guaranteed to be fun, enjoyable, and will make a positive impact on your overall health and well-being!
This program is open to all faculty, staff and students.
Click here to fill out a registration form and turn it into Health Services by Wednesday Oct. 14. Also, print the LOL Scorecard to keep track of your points throughout the challenge.

Each year in the United States, about 17,000 women get cancer that is linked with HPV, and cervical cancer is the most common. Around 9,000 men get an HPV-associated cancer, and the most common are cancers of the back of throat, tongue, and tonsils. The HPV vaccine is important because the HPV infections that cause most of these cancers could be prevented with vaccination. View a short informational video.
