Thank you to the Peer Educators, who came to our general meeting this week! They discussed stress and relaxation with us, as well as touching upon what the peer educator program is doing now. It was a very good program, where we discussed the causes and symptoms of stress, particularly chronic stress, and then went through some relaxation techniques. Thank you to the peer educators - we definitely all benefited from this relaxing meeting for which you joined us!

Thank you to the women from Deloitte who came to our general meeting October 13, 2009. Their presentation was very informative, regarding Deloitte’s WIN Women’s Initiative and other new initiatives which help to create a comfortable and flexible work culture. This was a different meeting for us, but one for which we would like to thank the presenters and many Bentley women now working at Deloitte for spending the time with us!
Our annual Breast Cancer Walk event yet again went great! Thank you to everyone who did the three or six mile walk around the Charles River Esplanade. It was a great time with a fantastic turnout. So far the amount raised by this team (only one of Bentley’s teams) is $3,591, which is terrific! Our goal is to reach $4,000 before fundraising ends. Fundraising continues for at least another month, so keep on going with it, everyone. It is definitely a good cause to get behind, affecting a vast number of people.
The Breast Cancer Walk Reception was quite fun. People came and got their t-shirts, which everybody loved! Great design this year, as per usual. People were very excited for the upcoming walk. A decent number stayed to play Colleges Against Cancer’s Breast Cancer BINGO - which was also a lot of fun. All in all, the food was good, the shirts were terrific, the game was fun, and everyone seemed to have a fabulous time.
The Female Orgasm Event was a great success this year. We had an absolutely phenomenal turnout, filling all the seats in Wilder Pavilion and then having many people sitting up and down the aisles as well as in the back. Throughout the event, the audience participation was quite impressive. Everyone appeared to have a great time and get a lot out of the event. It seems that Dorian and Marshall’s formula of entertainment and information truly allows for the best event possible on a topic many previously experienced as taboo or hushed. In addition to the terrific turnout, the number of students buying items from the back was significantly more this year than in the past (likely due to the addition of their credit card machine).
Thank you to everyone who came out for the event - it was a definite success!
