Personal Initiative

Please be respectful this Halloween and remember that mental illness is not
a Halloween costume.

Are midterms making you stressed? Check out the American Psychological
Association’s list <https://www.apa.org/topics/stress/tips> of healthy ways
to handle stress.

Happy Halloween! There are so many fun ways to celebrate without alcohol or
substances.

   -

   Have a costume contest
   -

   Carve pumpkins -- and even make it into a contest!
   -

   Decorate cookies to make them look ~ spooky ~
   -

   Have a scary movie marathon
   -

   Get a group of friends together and see who can tell the spookiest
   stories (Hint: if you need some inspiration, check out these tales
   <https://www.rd.com/list/scary-halloween-true-events/>)
   -

   Visit a haunted house
   -

   Celebrate with friends you trust!



Tell Us About Your First Half of the Semester!

For most students at the Law School, we are halfway through our first
semester of completely on-site, in-person instruction. We should all take a
minute (at least) to be proud of getting to this point!

It's also an opportunity to reflect on what UMN Law has done and can do to
promote student well-being. So, we created this anonymous survey/suggestion
box
<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf2Q4DplFTmIeEiz1GAy3Qxx5DglLU4QY79TWj2UEZnLRrB1A/viewform>
where students can share their experiences, both what you would like to see
more of and what you think is harmful to the Law School culture.

Our goal is to take your concerns and suggestions and push for change that
will create a more welcoming and empathetic environment. Thank you for your
support!

Advice Column

Any questions, concerns, or topics that you’d like some advice on, feel
free to submit them here
<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1anKIk6flI3DTzW_m6yEKOXMoQmoZc57SVj7g4Ux6qqY/edit?usp=sharing>!
You’ll get real advice, and maybe some memes for your situation.
Resources

WBI has created a Resources Page on our website
<https://sites.google.com/umn.edu/wbi/resources> where law students can
always go to find support.
