Fraternity & Sorority Life Presents… Seize the Awkward

The words “I’m fine” are used in many contexts, but when it comes to our mental health, are we truly “fine” all the time? Talking to others about how you are really doing should not be awkward and together as a community, we can help make that happen. The national campaign “Seize the Awkward” is coming back to campus for the second year in a row huskies! This campaign focuses on how mental health can be extremely hard to speak about candidly: so let’s change that together.

On Wednesday, March 23th, our Awkward Art Night will be held from 7:00- 9:00 PM in MUB Ballroom A. Join us as we get creative and bring awareness to mental health and help to destigmatize those conversations surrounding it. All art supplies will be provided, please feel free to also bring your own. 

Thursday, March 24th, the Walk Out of Darkness will be held at the John Macinnes Student Ice Arena from 7:00- 9:00 PM. This walk is meant to help to make those conversations about mental health a little less awkward, and support those who may be struggling by giving them a safe space. Whether you’re walking for yourself, a loved one, or a friend; you’re not alone in your journey. Campus and community resources will also be available at this walk for students to engage with.

Talking about our mental health should not be awkward. Let’s come together and show our faculty, peers, friends, and family who may be struggling that we are in their corner and support them every step of their journey. For resources and to learn more about this campaign, please check out!
