  • Implications for Happiness
    Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014, 12 - 12:50 pm
    207 Monroe Hall
    The past two decades have witnessed a proliferation of research on personal happiness. One national survey called The Happiness Initiative identified domains of happiness such as material well being, time balance, social support, government, and work experience. This survey was administered to the EWU and broader Cheney community in spring of 2013. Senior psychology majors,
    Kenzie Bush and Benjamin Lister, compare the perspectives of students, faculty, staff, and Cheney community residents with national survey results, and discuss the future implications for increasing personal happiness. 
  • Gaye Adegbalola-Two Concerts and a Lecture Civil Rights, Voting Rights, Gay Rights and the Blues
    Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014, 3-4 pm 
    Monroe 207
    During Gaye Adegbalola's teaching career, she moonlighted as a musician. By maintaining the blues legacy, she now sees herself as a contemporary member of a class of traveling poets, musicians, and storytellers who maintain a tradition of oral history in parts of West Africa - keeping the history alive, delivering messages of empowerment, ministering to the heartbroken, and finding joy in the mundane. As a founding member of Saffire - the Uppity Blues Women, she became a full-time performer. (Saffire ended in November, 2009, after making music together for 25 years.) Ms. Adegbalola delivers unifying messages and social insight in a fun, wickedly witty, irreverent and big way. Ms. Adegbalola composes, sings, plays acoustic guitar, slide guitar, and harmonica. These presentations are cosponsored by EWU Pride Center, Eagle Entertainment, SAIL, and EWU Women's Studies Center.

  • From Body Hater to Body Celebrator
    Tuesday, Oct. 14, 2014, 7-8 pm
    JFK Auditorium
    Amber Kryzs founder of bodyhearter as she inspires audience members to start living now. Too many of us get caught up in the "When...Thens." You know: "When I lose 10 pounds, then I'll wear my skinny jeans." "When my skin clears up, then I'll talk to that guy." "When I make more money, then I'll take a vacation." Kryzs blamed her body for the acting jobs she didn't land or the guys that didn't call. She comforted herself with food and punished herself with exercise. She describes herself as a mess - all because of a "when/then." While living her dream as an actress in a Broadway show, she was completely miserable because she believed having a better body - a perfect body - would make her happier and more successful. In this inspiring and humorous keynote, Kryzs shares her personal story of how she won her own "perfect body game." Cosponsored by SAIL, Eagle Entertainment, and EWU Women's Studies Center. For more information, contact Katie Del Monte at leadership@ewu.edu.
