—“Rapid Anxiety Reduction Tools” by Assistant Professor in Nursing Anne Devney; Star Party by Associate Physics and Astronomy Professor Kimberly Herrmann. Talk begins at 7:00 p.m., General Studies Auditorium (GSB); Star Party begins at 8:15 p.m. (weather permitting) in the field between Orchard Road and the GSB parking lot. Using a “mindfulness” approach costs nothing, yet it can yield many positive results! Dr. Devney will share her expertise in mindfulness strategies by exploring techniques anyone can use (including faculty and students) to overcome anxiety as they enter stressful situations, such as in labs or exams. Participants will learn one-, two-, and three-minute techniques to deal with stress. Weather permitting, Dr. Herrmann, associate professor in physics and astronomy, will lead a Star Party after the presentation from 8:15 p.m.—10:00 p.m. Telescope viewing and night sky tours with green laser pointers will be part of the star party activities. Multiple telescopes should be available, courtesy of the TriState Astronomers, a local amateur astronomy club. Precipitation or cloud cover may require the star party to be canceled. Those interested in astronomy can also attend Penn State Mont Alto Planetarium Shows this fall from 7:00 p.m.—8:00 p.m. on select Thursdays and Fridays (Sept. 12 and 13, Oct. 10 and 11, and Nov. 14 and 15).
