We are working on new merchandise so stay tuned for future updates! A goal we’ve had is to win the AMS Student Chapter of the Year and our President Tyler Stanfield presented to us the accomplishments we’ve had this year to hopefully achieve this. We are also considering a constitutional amendment to change the definition of an active member – moving from one service event per semester to one service event during the year. All additional service events will count toward making up missed general meetings! In addition, officer elections will be held next month so be on the look out for future announcements via email.

In addition to this she talked about how importance of a healthy diet, adequate amounts of sleep, exercise, and living a balanced lifestyle can help your mental health. She also talked about anxiety and depression. At the end of the meeting, an anonymous Q&A was done to allow students to ask more pointed questions. Resources to get help, along with information about the resources available to deal with anxiety, stress and depression were passed out.
