HIV & Millennials Panel, Nov 30th

“As the AIDS epidemic continues beyond three decades, a phenomenon known as ‘HIV prevention fatigue’ has appeared. HIV prevention fatigue is a sense of boredom, disinterest, or weariness when exposed to HIV prevention messages” (Mayeux, MA).
Like other high-risk populations, the Millennial Generation is at great risk of falling victim to a new epidemic which poses to shift attitudes towards HIV in a life-threatening direction. This is the epidemic of ambivalence.
As part of World AIDS Day, a panel of HIV educators and medical experts has been assembled to speak to the mental, physical and even spiritual threats that persist around HIV and AIDS infection. ASU invites you to join the panel discussion Nov. 30th 2015 in McDaniel Hall rm 101.

Green Home Design Course ID 179 open to Students and Community Spring Semester

As environmental matters grow more and more prominent in our communities, media, and personal lives, the need is ever growing for ways to maintain one’s quality of life while minimizing their impact on the environment. Natural Power and Adams State University Community Partnerships are offering a course to both Adams State University students and San Luis Valley community members that fills this need by educating attendees on a wide variety of environmentally-friendly construction designs, materials, and technology. This class gives a practical education on the construction and modification of healthy and holistic living spaces designed to minimize their negative impact on the resident and the environment, and is relevant to any current or future homeowner.

The Green Home Design course will cover topics such as use of solar energy, conservation of energy and water, straw bale and adobe housing, and retrofitting an existing home, among many others. It also gives students the opportunity to visit environmentally friendly buildings around the valley and take part in hands-on lessons. Classes will be held every other Saturday starting on January 23rd, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. in the School of Business room 142 on Adams State Campus. The course is available both for-credit for ASU students (CRN 12236, ID 179), as well as non-credit for community members.

Current ASU students may register for the course as they would any other class at Adams State, while community members may register for the course either in person or over the phone with ASU Community Partnerships. For more information, or to register non-credit, please contact Brock at (719) 587-7230 or at
